LOVE THE TERRACING. Stepping down. A sloping or even flat site can be terraced to create an easy and gradual transition from the house to the earth. This is especially useful when you want multiple outdoor spaces and the property is large enough to accommodate the terracing.
Splashy Style Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley created a playful oasis in the backyard of her Manhattan townhouse, complete with a swing, chaise longues upholstered in cheerful prints, and a pool long enough for swimming laps or splashing around with her family.
