Backyard Inspiration

When looking for a Just-Right design plan for your everyday outside life,  A Week Of Backyard Living will give inspiration and ideas. It’s about, “let the good times roll” and yet, your outdoor space is part of your home and you want it cozy & comfy. Let’s take a jaunt down memory lane . . .

Way-Back Wednesday

Way back at the start of this season, we turned up a driveway in the woods. A gorgeous home came in view and boasted a reverie few enjoy on a daily basis or once in a lifetime. Rustic yet Sofishticated it has a sit-a-spell feel to it. The soft-quiet soothes. Gaze into the koi pond to get your day started, like our homeowner who visits every morning or take a walk-about.  Rustic Landscape Design  PS – What do you call a fish with no eyes? Fsh!


Throwback Thursday

Or shall we call it Transformation Thursday? After-all, our backyard landscape has gone through a dramatic transformation and now boasts an outdoor living room as exceptional as the inside living room. Not only is it a family relax zone, it offers bar dining and a smorgasbord cheese & wine spread to wine & dine friends. As you meander thru – picture yourself D-stressing here. Outdoor Living Room

Send Me Back Saturday

Pizza always sends me back for an extra slice… these homeowners won’t have to worry about seconds! Why? They had a top-o-the-line pizza oven craned into their backyard! We will never forget this momentous event – and neither will their neighbors.  Can you believe it? This concept is so fun & better – this pizza-loving family will enjoy it for decades!
