Here is a project we just finished in Laurelhurst. We added a rock wall to the front yard where there used to be a steep slope. In the back we added a concrete ball fountain that I made with salvage metal screens behind. A bluestone path takes you through the lawn to the back of the yard. A birdhouse post was added with birdhouses that Darin and I made at Laurel Hedge. Metal edging was used to create a fire pit area for the clients solo stove. We also added a gravel path with an evergreen boarder.
Here are a couple of before pics
