A Small Yard With Big Impact

To create a feeling of expansiveness in a small yard, Christopher J. Cohen carved out distinct garden areas and outdoor rooms. Here, an ornamental border along the street adds curb appeal, an entry garden welcomes visitors, there's a private patio for dining, and a woodsy backyard for lounge-chair relaxing—all on a 60-by-100-foot lot. Not only do the "rooms" make the yard more functional, they keep from revealing the whole place at once, so there's a sense of discovery as you move through them.
