Drought tolerant plants in between pavers
small but still looks like a waterfall
simple patio with broken pavers and thyme
snap together wood tiles. Interesting concept
Another example of colorful grass growing between flagstones
Love the way the path winds. Could work well in a narrow area.
Like the walled planters creating a border with the strip of stone all along the walls base.
paving stone pattern
I like how the planters are on each side of the bench.
Like the large simple slabs separated by strips of planting and the low wall as a border.
Interesting way to lay out shady narrow part of yard. I like the large rock up front and the path through area
Great stone wall border without being a "cage" and the three cypress at the back to lead the eye beyond the wall.
I love the balanced design
Love the clean lines of this yard with a combination of stone and grass. Large stones with pebbles is nice touch too.
the diamond layout of each paver is intriguing and decorative
water feature that creates an "island" to go over and relax on.
a little bit of decking off the door; small blue rock against edge of house and between pavers.
great mix of sizes and colors of pavers, so it's not so blocky looking
Love the idea of stone landing off the house, then fades into separate blocks, then the lawn.
another example of diamond layout of pavers AND fake grass, which may be perfect idea of side yard where grass dies.
deck down to pavers in circular pattern, with straight edge coming off to lead the eye.
so neat and clean looking, but with great mix of textures
notice deck at bottom of image, goes to diamond pattern pavers with gravel between. The layout zigzags rather than form the typical rectangle.
love the bridge to the seating area and water feature
red bird-of-paradise (caesalpinia pulcherrima)
I like the Mediterranean garden - California style
Love the large urn in the clean design with lots of cheery lavender and the long "hair" of the grasses.
Like the enticement of the arch to lead you to hidden area.
great water feature, delightful seating area set back, and also like the little rocks as a border at the edge of the patio.
stone planters act as frame to bench with paving stones at feet separated by little rocks
Great path and easy to care for edging plants to lead to...where? I want to go see.
Love the balance achieved with duplicate looking edges; hardy, simple, texturally interesting grasses; splash of color from the flowers. Would put something simpler in center, maybe a water fountain?
So fresh, so pretty to have the pink roses against the white picket fence with darker lavender to balance the intensity of the colors.
patio, decorations for focal point, includes spot for barbecue and simple, but lots of plants
diamond layout for pavers, benches as border, white arch
French drain idea
This is so lovely - the water with meandering grass pathway and house peeking from back.
square pavers "fading" into grass.
An umbrella can be used to block view of neighbor's windows
deck flush with ground. Great for dog or us to lay on in sun. Fake grass next to it protects from no use of sprinklers.
I like the idea of the wall fountain behind seating on small patio that blends into fake grass. Idea could be good for side yard.
Gorgeous idea for a pool and border (water splashes over side onto rocks)
Perfect little waterfall feature. Compact.
Simple, running water feature.
I like the small pavers in the main area for decoration then large pavers at edge
great little yard stream
Love the organized area of garden leading to and surrounding the sitting area
fun idea to checkerboard paving stone with grass
