Something for Everyone

From Backyard From Scratch, April 2006

I love the way this yard is broken up into smaller "mini" garden areas—including a small waterfall, stream, and fish pond topped with a fountain—with stone walking paths throughout that lead you to the highlights of this rather large space. The area shown here is perfect for early morning meditation: a secluded spot equipped with a wooden bench to sit and do some reading or bird watching. To top it off, for a little bit of action, there are also built-in sports courts to get all your Italian friends together for a game of bocce. Okay...well, you don't have to be Italian to play.
