Houzz is the new way to design your home.

This hardscaping serves several purposes. It encompasses retaining walls, stairs, walkways and garden beds all in one. A lot of visual interest is created by the contrasting textures in the choice of stone and masonry.
While this is rather plain hardscaping (simple concrete walls), the choice to fill the terraced wall with varying colors of grass creates tremendous visual appeal.
Vertical gardens are increasingly popular and this is a wonderful example of making the most of a small space. The terraced "lawn" climbing towards the garden wall, which is almost a living quilt of various hues and textures, really leaves a great impression.
The stepping stone border around this patio provides visual interest while candle lanterns give atmosphere and warmth.
The heavy greys of this hardscaped space are broken up by landscaping with colorful flowers. Little pops of color go a long way to make a space feel vibrant and cheery!
A stunning pergola provides shade and beauty to this otherwise plain hardscaped space. Pergolas give attractive climbing plants a place to grow and can be a great focal point for your yard.
Love the outdoor fireplace! It's nice to have a removed space further up and back as well, so that that fireplace doesn't dominate the entire space.
Wow. Who says that outdoor meals have to be 'casual' dining? This is elegant. The retaining wall set with candles makes a bold statement but doesnt feel oppressive.
This privacy screen allows the open space to still feel open.
This small space is still dynamic because of this beautiful paving.
A small backyard can provide cozy warmth with the addition of a firepit. We love this intimate, clean design. Steps leading to the backyard make it feel like its own private reverie.
This gorgeous contemporary layout makes great use of an awesome view! Don't have anything to look out on in the distance from your yard? Create a garden focal point and orient your sitting space to overlook that portion. Or, let the fire pit steal the show!
Love the natural, woodsiness of this scene! The granite walkway creates a safe surrounding area for this fire pit, too.
Built in seating can encourage those enjoying the space, especially younger persons, to keep a safe distance.
A unique blend of retro and modern details, this fire pit and surrounding patio demonstrate a fearless blend of classic ideas.
Many types of stone giving way to a grass walkway makes this scene feel natural and clean at the same time.
Built-in seating makes any yard more inviting.
Levels in your garden offer variety, privacy, and more interest for the eye.
Lush flowers soften hard landscaping lines. A perfect complement!
The large, irregularly spaced pavers offers some very nice visual appeal.
Very cozy, nice use of color.
You can't help but want to hang out here!
The pergola creates a fantastic open air outdoor room which could be a relaxing place to spend time for hours.
This rolling garden wall really helps to showcase the home!
