Even small urban spaces can incorporate water features.

Angled roof sections on the home paired with a bright white exterior create a glowing backdrop for this simple pergola structure. The clean lines of the wood formation sit over concrete patio flooring. A wood fence frames the outer perimeter of the yard adding privacy and closing off the yard.
This home is designed to be a functional space that complimented the backyard's mature trees. The yard is built to tolerate the hot central Texas temperatures but also be beautiful during the Spring and Fall months when grasses grow. The fence surrounding the yard is finished with a warm wood stain.
A concrete walkway leads from the driveway, around the sharp corner of the house, and ends at a small patio and door entry. A mix of vertical and horizontal white siding, wood siding and stone creates an intriguing finish over the exterior. Slanted roof sections over the levels in the architecture gives the home unique shape.
Rather than pay to remove the unsightly metal fence from her Chicago apartment patio, Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs covered it up with stained and pressure-treated lumber. The horizontal panels create privacy that the pre-existing metal fence didn’t offer. Red chairs provide a fun pop of color against the brown and gray tones of the patio.
