A refined material palette modernizes this conventional 60′s ranch-home’s yard. Repetition of materials like stone, ipe and concrete combine beautifully to form a bold and contemporary garden.

1. Houzzers loved the casual contemporary look of this outdoor patio. The fireplace is partially surrounded by a built-in bench with added light fixtures, and cold slate tile contrasts with the terra cotta walls.
I love the fire pit built into a wall. I could see this against the back wall. I love the idea of a fireplace, but don't want a firepit to take up space in the backyard. But built into the retaining wall could be cool.
