What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Have Lemons? Make a Decorative Statement
And if you're in a warmer climate, a citrus tree (or four) will keep you rich in bright color (not to mention vitamin C) for months on end. For colder climates, pot a dwarf citrus tree for the same effect. Next: Fill your eyes with more photos of yellow!
Becky Harris added this to Show Off the Shape of Spheres
I love the way this sphere is centered in this shot; I think it's aligned so that it can be viewed from inside the house out into the landscape as well. The funny thing is it looks a little bit like a really fancy giant bowling ball that's going to take down the split of the two chairs.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Citrus 101: Start Your Own Backyard Orchard
While temperature and sunlight are certainly vital, many first-time gardeners forget about drainage, another important consideration when deciding if a citrus should be potted or planted. What kind of soil do you have in your backyard? If your backyard has a heavy clay content, you may want to test its drainage capabilities by pouring a good amount of water into the hole for your tree. If there's still some water left the next day, you should consider digging the hole deeper, mixing organic amendments into the soil, and planting the tree higher to keep water from pooling around the base.
Here a mirrored sphere creates a focal point in the foreground of this courtyard garden. See more spheres around the home and garden
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Crazy for Fruit Trees
With judicious pruning, your fruit trees can function as screens along a fence. Citrus trees, like those shown here, are easy to keep within bounds. For other fruit trees, you will need to employ summer pruning techniques to keep them smaller. Provide enough soft surface space under the trees' canopies so that any falling fruit won't splatter on the patio.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Formal Parterre Gardens Rule the Landscape
Today, the formal parterre garden can be modified to fit any design scheme. We love how this example contains many traditional elements but is comfortable for lounging and contains modern touches that fit with the design scheme of the rest of the house.More:Lay of the Landscape: Traditional Garden Design
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
The simple addition of two marigold-yellow accent pillows makes a contemporary green and gravel garden glow.
Laura Gaskill added this to Citrus Hues Add Zest to Rooms
Give outdoor rooms a boost. In the backyard or on decks, porches and patios, citrus colors are a natural choice. Echoing the vivid hue of the sun and flowers in bloom, yellow and orange add punch, while green blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape.
Debra Prinzing added this to How to Tap the Potential of a Big Side Yard
A large side garden gets upgraded to a private courtyard with sophisticated lines, incredible details and luxe accessories. This is more than an outdoor "room," it's a grand, fresh-air environment where two or 20 can easily gather.A low wall encloses the space and defines it as a distinct environment, while the flooring's importance is elevated, thanks to bands of stone that turn a mass of crushed rock into an interesting patterned carpet.Low, tightly clipped boxwood provides "baseboard" detailing, connecting the horizontal and vertical planes with precision.The minimalistic furnishings are all that are needed to complete the scene: Two chaises, placed for impact with lemon-yellow pillows. They visually balance two rounded objects — an oval-clipped tree in the distance and a stainless steel orb in the foreground.Like a jewel box, this space opens to reveal treasures within. You may not want to enter and disturb its perfection. But then again, nothing could be more luxurious than to sit here with a tall, cool drink, soaking up the sun.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Vegetables and Flowers Mix in Beautiful Edible Gardens
The modern edible. The blended garden readily adapts to any garden style. Fruit trees are seamlessly incorporated into this modern outdoor sitting area, elevating the space from merely beautiful to bountiful as well.

To make a small garden feel wider, use the same paving material right across the space. Here, light-coloured gravel surrounded by cream paving slabs makes this front courtyard feel light and spacious, with the clipped box hedging providing a crisp green border. The stainless-steel globe opposite the front door is a beautiful device to direct visitors to the entrance.
