Outdoor Dining Terrace

Got rid of all the grass, installed some drought tolerant plants, added a water feature and created a raised dining terrace with privacy screens in an otherwise exposed back yard.

Thanks for the feedback! The upright plant at the back is a "Waterfall" Japanese Maple, and the lower shrub in the front is a Carol Mackie Daphe. Hope this helps!

Love this look! What did you use in between the stone pavers? Mulch?

Yes, mulch in the short term, ground cover (Irish Moss) for the long term.

Our backyard is right on the creek! I want to keep that view so we can repeat the black wrought-iron back there but this time I want it high. Like 8' high! With a gate we can lock. On either side of the house, however, I want 8' privacy fencing. I don't want my neighbors' screaming kids to run out and see me sunbathing half-nekkid. haha Plus, the homes on either side of us are zoned residential and commercial and they run businesses out of there. (Ours is too but we just want it to be our house.) So while they have customers, I don't want to be trying to enjoy my backyard while being ogled by strangers or have to listen to their conversations. I want to be able to play some music, read a book, have some privacy in my pool, etc. AND entertain my own guests without disturbing their businesses. Plus, my dog is a jerk and tried to attack other dogs. Unluckily for us, both businesses we're sandwiched between are dog-centric. So, something she can't get through and people can't easily peek over would be great. But here's the rub: the fence HAS to be wood with breakaway panels since we are in a flood zone. It hasn't flooded here in hundreds of years but if it happens, the fence panels need to be able to be washed down by the water. So we'd have some kind of breakaway system to secure them in place. It's a weird detail but hugely important. I can't install a fence only to have the city come tell me to take it down. Must comply. :/ Also want tall planter pot thingies back here for flowers. I don't like floor-level gardening. Something I can stand up and tend to is best. And the less dirt or rocks, the better. I like grass, concrete and water and like it to be clean, dog-friendly and low-maintenance.
