small backyard - My backyard is about 14'x10' and my dream is to have a waterfall and fire feature. I have a covered patio with a 2'drop-off. I have multiple sclerosis and it is a danger for me. I need to rven out thr backyard but have no financial abiliity to pay for it. The MS Society would give their tax number to write off as a donation. Can you help me?

There are options for water features that are just as soothing and therapeutic but do not cost nearly as much. Please feel free to contact me for these options ranging from $500.00 to $1,500.00. My direct business number is 415-322-8873.

Also there are several options to help protect yourself from the dropoff. One may be to have pots with nice herbs that you can reach in a wheelchair and snip to take into the kitchen. It would look pretty and add function of safety as well as lovely fragrance and culinary delight!

What is the initial cost up front for a feature like this? Does the site have to be terraced already, as my patio is perfectly flat in Los Gatos CA.

Does the site have to be terraced already or will a flat surface work?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Tree: Japanese Maple
Before you plant. Japanese maples have a slow growth rate and temperamental nature and can be scarce and expensive at nurseries. After planting, be sure to keep the soil moist yet well drained, and protect the tree from severe winds and harsh sunlight which can scorch its foliage. Routine pruning can promote air and sun circulation to the core of the tree, preventing future disease or infestation.Design plants with autumn color:Persian Ironwood | Smoke Tree | Bald Cypress | Feather Reed Grass | New Zealand Wind GrassMore great design plants:Tree Aloe | Red Kangaroo Paw | Blue Chalk Sticks | Catmint | Slipper Plant
If you know red in the garden, then you have probably met a Japanese maple. With cut leaves so intricate, they almost look like blood-tinged lace, Japanese maple makes a statement loud and clear. Pair your maple with understated evergreens, rocks and greens for the best show.How to grow Japanese maples

Japanese maple -- routine pruning is necessary to promote air and sun circulation (preventing disease). keep soil moist yet well drained after replanting.
