yard design ideas - Front Patio! I love the idea of a low wall that has a built in bench - bench could be on the top of the wall OR on the interior of the wall and use the wall as a back rest. Fire pit in the center.
When designing any plant bed, there are 3 main plants you'll want to focus on. Specimen plants (usually an ornamental tree), accent plants (roses or other shrub to provide color), and a key plant (larger tree/shrub to help house feel the right size).
