Therapeutic escape

An expansive back yard garden was designed around relaxation

Taylor, a guest to the Nowaks’ home, enjoys a relaxing evening near the back yard fireplace.

Colorful flowers spill over the low walls that line the walkway that trails through this back yard garden.

The tidy beds are edged with a river-like border of black Mexican beach rock, which actually looks blue when dry.

The homeowners dog, Harley, trots through the landscape, on the lookout for squirrels and other pesky critters.

Variegated dogwood sets off the concrete pagoda, which weighs 759 pounds and luckily came in five pieces.

Backed by red carpet roses, a fisherman drops his line into a pool of irises that sport dark purple flowers in July.
