At water's edge

Pittsburgh homeowners open the gates to their summer retreats and lush landscapes

Lawn ornaments, like this whimsical concrete statue spray painted bronze, are scattered throughout the flower beds in this garden.

This entire back yard is connected to an irrigation system so the gardens are always watered.

To create the tropical theme in his landscape design, the homeowner ships in Robellini palm trees and hibiscus bushes each year.

Low voltage outdoor lighting and fiber optic lights in the swimming pool create a welcoming atmosphere in the evening.
