Our house and studio will form an L-shape to maximize our yard space and to allow for some privacy, which may be more important to us than most other city-dwellers. We are used to a large yard (almost an acre), where we can’t even see our neighbors’ homes. I really like our design that secludes us just a bit with the L-shape, and I’m hoping that it looks as good as the examples below.
The yard above is one of my all-time favorites. I love the deck that looks like a stage, the rocks, pavers, and the covered outdoor dining…these things are all on my list. The place below is gorgeous too, and just a little bit wild and overgrown, which is such a nice contrast to the angular, crisp house.

I like the mix of materials above, and that corner bench on the deck below is really great surrounded with plants.
