Cozy Plot of Land

From A Light Touch, September 2004

Segmenting a yard into distinct areas can be effective. In this case, a discrete stone wall separates a proper patio from the relative wilderness of the outer yard. This is one of my favorite lawns because it's well-maintained without being overly styled or manicured. Green, but not necessarily lush.
