The Perfect Yard
all images from my home ideas
My idea of the perfect backyard would be a place for outdoor dining, relaxing, entertaining, gardening and play. The designer's solution for the image above was to prune back the hedges to open up the yard to light and create a series of sunny living spaces. What I personally love most about this yard is that it has designated spaces for everything in an enclosed private yet open space.
Another thing, I've always wanted a guest house in my back yard. A place where I can go to relax or a place we can put guests in without feeling as if we constantly have someone in our own house. It gives them their privacy and us ours. The above image really incorporates everything I want in a yard, therefore it's the perfect yard in my books!
Imagine waking up to this view?! It's -35 today so all I can do is imagine.
