About 10 years ago when I started working with Darin on Landscape instals we designed and put in a yard near NW 23rd in Portland. Now after our client has children and things grow and change we put in a few updates to the yard. Here are some photos below.
The first photo shows the bluestone path we installed. Metal edging on the sides and bluestone spaced apart for the girls to hopscotch on. This area had been a lawn path and is now a lot less maintenance.
We also added some great metal pots to the man cave entrance above the garage.
For the girls who love orange and pink, we added a fun mushroom garden.
