Award-Winning Urban Landscape

Since the back yard is at the end of a short alley, the privacy fence is essential to completing the coziness factor. It serves to block the view of the driveway, alley and the neighbor’s yards and vehicles. The homeowners liked the lattice on the old fence so the gate has that carry-over feature which allows them to see through to the driveway plus gives the gate a little character. The top of the fence is meant to mimic the pattern of the top of the windows at the back of the house. The stucco columns in the fence, on either side of the gate and down that side of the yard, tie into the house using the same stucco finish and the Indiana limestone caps on the columns match the caps on top of the upper terrace and the window sills.

You have a very beautiful and serene garden, I love such lush green and spacious gardens. Thank you for sharing the image with all of us here. Are those wooden fences? They look good with your sculpted garden. Good job indeed.

What size tile is best for a backsplash in a small kitchen? - Kitchen is L shaped with small island, hardwood floors. Looking at neutral colored granite for island and counters. Wondering if small 1" tiles are best due to small size.

Hello, I could probably answer your question based on my own design tastes, however, since we are a landscape company I think you may get a better response from an expert in the area. Here is a Houzz link to a tile company that we know well and will be able to direct you wisely. Have a great week!

Fencing provides privacy, though the top 600mm or so does allow light and ability to peak in. I like this for the rear fence. Prefer the vertical slats compared to the lattice on earlier photo.
