A small backyard defined by clean lines becomes a family gathering area and the perfect space for entertaining
What Makes It Work
The space is bordered on three sides by the house or a trimmed ficus hedge, lending the appearance of a true outdoor room. Modern furnishings establish a setting of chic sophistication.
To keep the landscape consistent with a modern scheme, plant a mixture of grasses for their color varieties and graphic appeal. They're also usually drought tolerant, so upkeep is minimal.
