Wanted a little oasis of sorts as I am allergic to grass, this is what I did to my backyard.

    I like your style. A lot! The textures you’ve brought in are fabulous: woodsy fence combined with shiny industrial, the tumbled look of the fire pit pavers, the softness of the grass. Is the walk path crushed limestone? I love that look too and it all works together. And I really like that you’re like me and a project might take or evolve over a couple of years but in the end it’s all worth it. Thanks for sharing - I’ll be using your ideas too.

      Thank you. Walkway is crushed granite gravel. I am working on it little by little. Hoping to get perennials planted so I only have maintenance. I love tinkering in my backyard.

      It is inside the fence the HOA approved. Double work but I want something special to look at....😊

    Love the ideas not sure in our area if they would even allow this but it's something I would seriously think about.
