Hello Jeffrey, i am a landscape architect in Calgary and am looking at designing my own back yard. I LOVE how you have done this, do you know of any websites/books that would tell me how to do this?
Thank you in advance!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The House as Part of the LandscapeThis modern house integrates the house with the garden, with the patio and entrance paving blending almost seamlessly with the rough surrounding meadow grass and plantings.

9. Make those beds curvy, even jagged. Don’t be afraid to make your borders and edges seductively voluptuous or unexpectedly sharp. Also, make foundation beds deep — trust me, they’ll look more interesting and give you room to breathe. One of the biggest problems with most foundation beds is that they are too narrow, coming out only a few feet from the wall — have them come out 6, 8, 10 feet so you can curve them and stagger plants, create sitting areas, remove lawn and generally make me happy.

Softened edges, unusual geometry. Using something ridged and making it more organic. Breaking the expanse with areas of organic material, including gravel is novel. Not a fan of spare, restricted overall look.
