A great place to get some inspiration for your next landscaping project is on vacation! We just got back from a fantastic trip to Breckenridge, Colorado with a beautiful example of great landscape design.
Obviously, the river that runs next to this outdoor living space is breathtaking and offers a natural element on which the homeowners really capitalized. The natural plantings that surround this space offer some seclusion that would be lacking otherwise, and although they lost some privacy by raising the patio, they created better river views for themselves by doing so. The stacked stone and boulders used for retention accentuate the already rugged look. Overall, natural stone was the best choice for this space to bring the elements of the river into the planned outdoor living area.
If you want this look at home, consider first whether it’s appropriate for your area as well as the style of your home. It’s also important to consider how you can best take advantage of what’s already present in your yard. Do you have a great view? Do you live near the water? Your landscaping should merge with those elements as a compliment rather than a detractor.
