Hi. This rug is from Crate & Barrel. I don't recall which rug it was exactly as it was purchased a couple years ago. But new outdoor rugs seem to come out yearly/seasonally from Crate & Barrel.

Hi there. I'm sorry, but we didn't design the shed, so I don't know the dimensions.

I don't know the exact type, since I didn't choose the plants/trees. But they are a type of maple.

What is the size of the yard? - Can you give me the length and width? Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A plot the size and proportions of a driveway is perfect for a bocce court: 10 to 13 feet wide and 60 to 90 feet long.
It's clear in comparing the previous image to this one just how different the use of plants becomes when the designer uses Brookes' ideas.In my early years of working in garden design, after leaving college in the early '70s, I can remember using a very restricted range of plants in my Brookes-style garden designs, including mainly ground covers, such as Hypericum calycinum and Brachyglottis greyi, and smaller conifers including Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Boulevard' and Thuja occidentalis 'Rheingold'. These were planted in blocks or groups rather than being in a traditional mixed border.
Does this contemporary garden tread in the footsteps of Morris? Consider that it is orderly, with straight lines and a formal layout, and well fenced. It is also far from the “wildness of nature”; it was planned carefully to be an outdoor continuation of the house. Morris strongly felt that garden design was about the domestic arts rather than horticulture, linking the garden to the house.Your turn: Do you have any garden features inspired by William Morris?
