Houzz is the new way to design your home.
I liked the way the design creatively uses change in level. Stones in lawn for walkway.
Natural shade from trees rather than structure. Provides ability to break up and soften large hard surfaces
lush edgings and ins and outs providing sheltered feeling in large stretch of paved area
soft grasses, meadow like area
raised area defines space
mowing without edging
seating in the midst of sea of grass
Great use of steep hill space for vegetable garden
valuing side yard space.
Incorporation of stone steps in lawn
patio layers---stepping up to another platform breaks up the long shape of it nicely.
I like the way the steps proceed at a diagonal rather than straight on up the hill.
Beautiful stroll along side of house
