Becky Harris added this to Get Ready...It's Patio Time!
I love the way the planted form peeks in and out of this patio. The designer did a great job of playing with the edge.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
Pavers. Pre-cut slabs of cement are an easy way to cover a large area of ground without too much upkeep. They create a nice flat ground, perfect for a table and chairs.

Clean look with moss instead of grass (keep the moss growing in dry climates with mister heads on sprinkler system 3-4x/day and sloshing dilute buttermilk on the area including tree roots & rocks). I did this in Denver, the moss grew, the squirrels dug it up that fall to line their nests...
