This is a backyard that is simple, but nicely landscaped with a patio, lawn area, and planting beds. Everything here is in scale and not overcrowded, not too much. Overdoing it in a garden is something that is easy to forget. Try to keep to scale!
How to build a beautiful back yard pond and water feature cheaply! Absolutely love having water features in a garden area/backyard. I will tuck this idea away for when I have a yard I can vandalize and rebuild :)
