What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to 16 Fire Pits to Fit Into Your Landscape
This retaining wall makes itself extra useful by incorporating a bench and fire pit into its side.
John Hill added this to Inspired Designs for Sloped Lots
One way of thinking about backyards with some topographical character is as separate outdoor "rooms," where a larger area is broken down into smaller parts on different levels. This is especially suitable to tight urban lots, like this one in San Francisco. Large pavers with moss growing in the gaps lead to steps to a raised area ...
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Mossy Accents for Indoors and Out
The lines of green moss in the floor balances all the slick concrete and gray stone of this modern patio.
