Enticing And Romantic Landscape
0 Sq. Ft.
There's something enticing and romantic about a garden gazebo. It creates an
intimate spot to sit and talk, perhaps making the difference between having a
few friends over and having a party. If you enjoy entertaining, this backyard
design featuring both a roomy deck and a lovely gazebo may be the one for your
The gazebo (not included in the plan) acts as the main focal point of the
design, drawing the eye by its shape, size and location and enticing visitors
by the stepping-stone path leading to its cozy confines. The lush plantings
surrounding the gazebo anchor it to the design, creating a flowery setting that
helps keep the structure cool and inviting.
The other primary feature of this garden is a large deck. The deck features
octagonal lines to echo and complement the shape of
the gazebo and has enough room to accommodate two separate dining tables. On
the practical side, a built-in barbecue and a storage cabinet turn the deck
into an outdoor extension of your home's living space.
The informal style of the design incorporates sunny and shady areas, as well
as a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs, to create a variety of
textures and patterns. Background plantings of tall evergreens assure privacy,
and a wide variety of flowering shrubs and perennials add seasonal color and
interest. Three deciduous shade trees frame the skyline, provide necessary
summer shade and let in warming winter sun.
The visual interest and action revolve around the gazebo, which is balanced
by a spacious deck, three deciduous shade trees and deep planting borders of
colorful flowering shrubs and perennials.
