Houzz is the new way to design your home.
landscaping bits and pieces to incorporate into our backyard design
plants against low concrete wall. no need for glass barrier?
can one uplight bamboo, or must stalks be white or light colored? uplighting in general...light other plants in back yard?
retaining wall around urbanite "patio" with or without seating ledge...undulating retaining wall only two blocks high?
side yard - idea for lighting mirrors on wall...does wall behind or around mirrors have to be light colored?
trellis instead of glass wind breaks?
varying heights of planting against wall make for interesting visuals. can we do this with various kinds of bamboo mixed with either other new plants or existing plants?
sculptural planters. nothing else from this pic.
stones are to "designy" more random and a little farther apart...color OK, but want more "used concrete" look,
bamboo in raised beds (perhaps boxes) along the side of the house and in back?
horse tail planting in boxes instead of glass wind barriers?
flagstone...want broken concrete...but getting closer...spacing needs to be a little larger between slabs.
spacing seems about right...but slabs are too regular. with this spacing, creeping thyme would work between slabs
kinda like this layout, but stones are too close together and need to be more random
like "random" pattern in "circle" but again, stones too close together
flagstones are closer to what I envision. they are still a little too close...but getting there.
shade "sails." yeah!
more shade sails.
even more shade sails...
low plants to fill in?
spacing is about right for creeping thyme?
planters along side yard to add height - in front of bamboos and mirrors?
more planters for side yard to add height? intermixed with bamboos in raised beds. made from railroad ties?
here you go...like this, but on a larger scale...!
bamboo a little too full...or?
ah, more patios made with urbanite and growing infill between stones.
raised bed for herbs?
maybe this kind of planting in lieu of windbreak around deck?
