Terrace Sitting Room - This West Vancouver yard is divided into distinct living spaces, like this cosy sitting area. Make a vignette like this more intimate by adding an arbour overhead. Remember that backyards don't always have to be swathed in grass. Instead, create an inviting terrace like this one with a Pennsylvania bluestone floor. This way, plants and flowers take centre stage without competing with green grass. Also, choose simple patio furniture to keep a garden from looking too busy.
