Animal-Friendly Backyard Oasis

Spanish influences and lush plantings transform an unfinished backyard into an elegant Mediterranean Space.

  • After building a new garage and studio space in their backyard, these homeowners knew the landscape needed some work.
  • Designer Avarie Shevin uses a combination of colorful plants, stone and wood to create a lush-looking, but tough, backyard.
  • The homeowners want to screen the space from the neighbors as well as add a small wading pool.
  • Flagstone paths define the lawn area and a five-foot deep pond is a stunning focal point for the space.
