In the back of the home, a private driveway leads into an attached garage with elegant wood doors. Raised flower beds set into large, stone retaining walls give the exterior of the space color and an elegantly manicured look. The two raised beds break at a wrought iron gate that opens to reveal the private courtyard that leads into the home from the rear.
This home's property is large enough to include a chicken coop, raised garden beds for growing vegetables and a garden shed. Pea gravel walkways stand out handsomely against the wood trim, fence and shed.
When selecting a raised garden bed, consider the style, such as metal sides or a wood frame (or both), and what you plan to grow. This metal and wood planter, sold by Gardeners' Supply, is 45 inches long and more than 15 inches wide, plus it is more than 15 inches deep to hold flowers, herbs and vegetables.
This outdoor sitting area provides a peaceful escape with its wood planked enclosed walls and a vibrant overhead umbrella. Lush plant life, including pink flowering trees and raised garden beds provide the space with a lively look.
This modern home is custom-fitted to its wooded, sloping site. Bold red trim makes the otherwise neutral structure stand out against a backdrop of trees. A fenced, modern garden features raised beds that are visible from a bi-level deck and covered patio.
