This is such a lovely home. The landscaping is marvelous with all of the vibrant colors. It would be my dream to get my yard looking like this.

Do you have more photos of this beautiful patio? Are the stone walls retaining or just cosmetic?

the Walls are all dry laid stone. They are retaining the grade for the patio that sit behind it. There is a planting bed and drainage system between the wall and patio to manage water during storms and abate any surcharge from the raised grade.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Give structure to a wide expanse of lawn. Use a gently curving, low stone wall to set the patio area apart from the rest of the yard. For more privacy, add flowers like these black-eyed Susans and small trees on the patio side of the stone wall.
This larger patio space is lightly enclosed and screened by a soft planting of shrubs and perennials. (Ornamental grasses would have worked well here, too.) This strategically placed garden provides a second, and more immediate, layer of privacy in conjunction with the yard's perimeter plantings. This layering technique is a great way to jump-start your privacy plan if you're just starting to develop your landscape.

Project: Redo the front yard.Why: Your landscape is one of the first things you, a visitor or a prospective buyer sees when arriving at your house. Renovating the front yard can renew your pride in your home, increase its value and, if desired, lower landscape maintenance costs.
11. Upgrade your front yard. If pulling up to your home at the end of the day gives you anxiety because your yard is a mess, it’s probably time for an overhaul. Full story: See how to upgrade your front yard for curb appeal and more

This is a lovely garden. The terrace level has a beautiful curve which encloses the terrace well. But we would not need that much height for the plants because we want the view of prairie and wetland
