Houzz is the new way to design your home.
would love to have this fireplace but maybe the firepit could be more rustic with smaller rocks and cut cedar logs as the benches nearby
mix of tall and low grasses
like the peekaboo aspect and the stone pillars on either side; would be great if we eventually make the lower part of the house all in rock
would love some twisty evergreens or cypress trees; reminds me of Umbria and Toscana
everything; the project looked doable without hiring a professional and I reallyl like that it looks like a room that draws your eye toward it
Love these big galvanized steel tubs, though I'd do something around them to cover up the industrial look of them
very nice though a lot more sunlight than I currently get on my side yard; I like the mix of ruby among the green and wonder what kind of plant it is and whether it is deer-friendly
would love some rhodos and heather in my front yard; white rodo especially for the Tibetan medicine it provides
really like a big urn or two with plantings around it
like the yucca as a focal point
this IS pretty much what I was thinking for my side garden; I like the enclosure because you can see through it though I'd need higher fencing to keep out the deer; I'd also like to have smaller rounder beds instead of rectangle and very important, I'd like them about 4 feet high. Could the beds be made on top of bales of hay?
Hmmm...an outdoor shower would be great if we ever built an outdoor sauna
I'd make the beds about 4 feet tall though I like the stone edging with pea gravel. The higher fence is much fancier than I'd need though it would look so much nicer.
I would like pops of blue, purple, red, yellow, and orange in the garden with plants or pots or both
WOW just WOW. Having a machinist in the family would certainly cut down on the cost of the manufacturing labor though we'd still have to do a lot of legwork with the cement pouring and such
I like the plant with the big green leaves that have a purple stripe down the middle
like the mix of rocks and ferns as well as the caged rocks; it is as if they're saying, "let me out" ;-)
Now we're talking!!! I like the pea gravel though the grey gravel next to the steel tubs is too harsh for my yard so would have to think of how to soften it, but this is a great solution for me.
I like the "table" creating a raised rain barrel. I also LOVE the purple grass. What IS that?
I like the look of these cement pavers in a checked pattern. Wonder if they'd be too much maintenance?
I like this look and maybe it could work with my front yard rain chain.
I like the ad hoc-like grouping of these big mishapen rocks with pea gravel and grass.
I really like the plant near the front of the stairs with big white-ish heads.
a cedar pergola with a swing would be a wonderful replacement for our old swing
love love love these big stone balls
would love a greenhouse someday though growing pumpkins is also top of list
gorgeous loook with all the stone
love the pops of the daylilies (?) and the red grasses
Love the simplicity. Like the constant water flow coming out of a sphere. The grasses are lovely pop of color and low maintenance.
like the haphazard look; not too "arranged" or perfect; like the big and small, oblong and odd-shaped ones all together
simple, nice; I like that the rocks and water do the vast majority of the work here
I like the St. Francis statue; patron saint of gardeners
dream raise bed garden :-) with attached writer's studio, of course
black and green--stark combo but the cedar fencing softens it; lovely
ooooh, great idea; I'll have to ask Matt about it when I'm ready for my veggie garden
the big leaved ornamentals are gorgeous and would do well during the winter, too
love love love that purple leaved plant--what is it?
definitely want hydrangeas, blue I think; also, white rhododendron
Love the rams and the fixture above the gate; very mystical; lends magic to it, too; would love to find statues that fit with my front yard design down the road...
hosta envy!!! look at the size of these gorgeous plants
there's power in solid color throughout as a contrast to all the green; gorgeous
Love the birdhouse; too white/formal for my garden, but would definitely like to have three or so; also need to hang some sun catchers to attract the fairies
again, love the birdhouse; this design reminds me a bit of the stretch in the backyard near the house
really like the low growing bamboos here; I wonder if they'd still do OK if you just kept pruning them back so they wouldn't get too tall?
love this iron trellis
not for this house, but I love the idea of a walled garden with raised beds and such
I've NEVER seen this done. What a FABULOUS idea, but I have too many trees to make it work without a lot of maintenance.
Are these some type of begonia? Gorgeous spot of ruby color.
