Living the garden life
Pair of Pittsburgh back yards takes outdoor living to the next level
Beautiful, circular beds filled with colorful flowers and plants surround each large tree in this yard.
Hosta, Hakone grass, coleus and a variety of annuals create beautiful texture and color in this garden area.
Rather than using a fence to separate these two properties, this new, sloped garden bed joins the two yards together.
The cascading watercourse is made of Pennsylvania glacier sandstone boulders and starts with a small pond at the top of the hill.
A pathway made of Maryland flagstone winds down the hill, past an inviting fire pit, to the pool below.
This Beach Party themed garden hosts a variety of unique plantings including Surfer Girl; Jaws; X-Rated; Wave Runner; Teeny-Weeny-Bikini; and Summer Breeze.
Items such as benches, statuary and gazing balls bring bright bursts of color to the gardens and flower beds.
