“There’s a Texas limestone edging around the perimeter of our landscape, which is actually salvaged from here on the site from the house that had been torn down,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 house planner Jack Thomasson. “It has a lot of character and rough edges.”
This expansive backyard features detailed landscaping, with stacked stone retaining walls and yellow flowering plants leading to the nearby bocce ball court and stunning swimming pool with a boulder water feature.
This gorgeous backyard has an oasis-like feel. Located below the infinity edge pool is a lounge-like seating area, which can only be reached by walking over the concrete stepping pads. Water spills over the stacked stone wall creating the sound of rain sticks.
Backyard Bluestone Patio With Stacked Stone Retaining Walls
Designer Heather Lashbrook Jones of a Blade of Grass Landscape Design suggests prioritizing areas that will be seen the most. From their back windows, the homeowners overlook a lovely bluestone patio so low stacked stone walls serve as a wow factor that define the outdoor living and dining areas. To cozy up the seating area, a custom outdoor fireplace was constructed using American and Corinthian granite.
Stacked stone walls create a rustic atmosphere for this welcoming covered patio. A brick walkway leads to the comfortable outdoor living space, while pebble beds are used throughout the backyard for low-water landscaping.
Lush Green Backyard Landscaping With Water Fountain
This vibrant backyard features all-over green landscaping, including palm trees and tropical plants. A paver stone walkway creates a path to a gray stone water fountain. Wall-to-wall windows provide a peek at the indoor living room, while a white roof overhang creates a touch of shade.
Large stone pavers spaced throughout the grassy backyard create a contemporary, geometric walkway. Stacked stone archways lend an Old World feel to the home and line the covered patio. Ivy-covered columns and elegant landscaping add to the traditional atmosphere of the outdoor space.
