Ornamented with natural stones and small evergreens, the backyard of the 2014 HGTV Dream Home is woodsy and serene. Two covered patios provide outdoor seating at the rustic vacation home, minutes away from Lake Tahoe.
For shade in this backyard, there are a cherry tree and a wood pergola; the pergola also acts as the main focal point. All around the border, plants soften the more industrial look of the concrete patio.
Landscape designers for this backyard paid careful attention to the plants' texture and size. Thin, narrow bamboo is used as a privacy screen, as well as an existing cherry tree. Succulents and perennials bring in color.
