Couldn't agree more. Fed up with lawn in our small suburban rere garden/back yard that took far more time, water and effort than it was worth ... I took the plunge a few years ago, covered every single centimeter over with a permeable membrane then pea gravel and best of all - no regrets. It's easily maintained, does not waterlog and looks good year-round especially in winter when there's little interest in a garden. It's a very clean, static material, does not degrade or break-up, weed free for the most part, warms with the sun and holds some heat, good to walk on in all weathers and no more dragging mud into the home. A quick rake from time to time and that's it. The permeable layer allows rain water to seep away quickly so no more wet patches and also means the gravel does not sink into the soil and disappear over time.

Potted perrenials such as Hosta varieties, lilliums, bamboos etc make for interest and are easily moved as the seasons come and go but with the constant backdrop of pea gravel. Space enough for a vegie patch, shed and greenhouse and any pet poops are easily spotted and removed - try doing that on a wet lawn. No more mess!

All in all, I should have done it years before as lawns (while they look good in many gardens) are labour intensive and water hungry even here in the wet and green Emerald Isle.

THIS defines what a GREAT Addition/remodel is supposed to be. Cohesive with the style and context of the house yet giving the homeowner what is needed. Thank heavens there are still some design people out there who respect the authenticity of the dwelling.
Great addition, design,and execution. This is a winner all around!

Beautiful home, everything goes so well together. I love people who design based on what they like....not for re-sale, trends or show.
I'm sure your husband would be proud of what you've acomplished;)
