Help! Need help designing a small back yard...

I have a long backyard that is not as deep. I would like to have some elements of a nice herb garden, a lemon tree and a place to entertain. I live in Southern California so the weather is always nice. I would really like it to feel like retreat as well... Any suggestions?

Hi:}What about a rock type flooring in middle with a circle for your lemon tree,and you could put grass on either side?You could then build some lovely planters for your herbs and some cute patio lounge furniture for entertaing or just to relax and read.Conversational sets are always nice for they come in every style and budget>good luck,new spaces are always fun:}

You should think of your area as spaces and create one maybe as a water garden,another as a fruit and veggi garden, and another maybe with a bit of lawn or something very shaded. I attached some pictures below for concepts. I am located in Southern California and would be able to help you with more ideas and picking plants. If you are interested let me know. Thanks.
