There are lawns. And then there are works of art. Perhaps your rectangular patch of turf feels lush. But why not give it an artistic treatment, like this enticing Alice in Wonderland–inspired checkerboard of grass and concrete pavers? (P.S. This lawn is durable, permeable and decorative — not to mention mowable!)Remember: The nonplant elements and pieces that you incorporate into the garden should be a reflection of your personal style. At the terminus of this patchwork-quilted lawn is a gorgeous contemporary water feature. Unique and functional, it balances the two-dimensional "floor" with just the right three-dimensional form.
