Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Like the color and different textures of the various grasses, and blue and red flowering bushes. Low growing purple flowering plants are nice spreading infill. No gravel though!
Not a fan of this kind of formal symmetry.
Like the low growing infill around the rock steps. Like the density of the 3' tall bushes in the background.
Do kind of like the board formed concrete water feature.
Very clean, like the composition of the pavers and water elements.
From this angle looking up the hill like the way the plantings seem dense. This is similar to our front yard coming up the hill.
This kind of stained horizontal board fence might be a nice enclosure for our yard waste cans, etc.
These totems seem a little cliche to me, everyone has one.
Creative use of a metal barrel. Like the rust and aging of the metal.
Landscape elements and compositions aligning with our windows for framed views is a nice idea.
Nice plant composition in a pot against a clean background.
Pretty red grasss.
Maybe a little to gaudy and arranged.
Nice hardscape and mounds of plants in the background.
Might be nice to have an element at the end of the driveway to put the house number on.
Like the geometric bluestone(?) pavers. Like the scale of the bushes with little white flowers, they would camoflauge any weeds.
Like these slender steel pipe pilotis holding up the thin open roof.
Not a fan of these planted area to the left with the little grass ball clumps in a big field of mulch.
Would be open to cistern if it can serve a planted area through the summer.
Our steep slope next to our neighbor is tough to plant. The amount of space between plants like in this picture just winds up with a ton of weeds, etc. that is really hard to deal with.
I'm interested in finding a place to put a hive in the future.
The pavers and planter borders are too "cute".
Like the clean layout of the large pavers bounding a section of grass.
Really like the stone steps, lights, and post railing. This could be the sort of stair that gets us from the front yard into the side yard in front of our snowberry hedge.
Not a big fan of the cutesy curvy path.
Nice clean geometric stone pavers with plantings to soften and overgrow the edges.
That's just a neat photo.
I could picture this as our side yard. In lieu of the concrete privacy walls we have the greenbelt. The areas we inhabit have some geometry and order while the surroundings as you move out from that order are more bushy and chaotic and overgrown. I like the way the areas are bounded and level and you can step from one area to another. Potentially could have a covering somehow that is clearly not part of the house...
Like this board formed concrete..
Strong forms of water element, would be nice to have a water element to mask the noise of 167. Are those radiant heaters under the deck?
Nice composition, neat idea with the steel beam on its side. Like the tile wall in the background as well.
Cool but must be quite expensive.
Could potentially make a water feature from the roof drain in front of our front window down into a rain garden in the shaded spot next to our front entry door in front of the daylit basement window.
Pretty pavers and border. This would be durable and hold up to chairs scraping and chicken poop, easily hose off.
Nice detail of layered plants and color composition.
Would love to have a grove of maples and/or birch, etc. This is very interesting tree detail.
Would prefer to not have to shape plants. Bushy is good.
Nice pavers and site lighting maybe accents the texture of the wall.
Like the size and density of the plantings here, you couldn't tell if there is weeds growing or not. Nice path lights.
Love the color and the tall spindly trees and they way they screen the house.
Pretty to look through the leaves and branches and private.
Not a big fan of seating walls that force you to sit in a particular configuration.
Like the positive and negative areas of the pavers and geometric planted areas.
Gravel or river rocks don't work in our yard, the maple leaves and seedlings are impossible to clean out.
I like these type of trees that seem like umbrellas, trees and plants are looked at from above in our house and from the underside when viewed from the street due to our steep yard.
I like the thought of being able to hang a hammock from two trees in the backyard.
Like the retaining wall with the plants spilling over and down. Maybe something like this in the stepped planters at our front door?
Not picture of bushy layers and colors.
