After looking over the design plans, the Ohs decide to use the expertise of Barbara Scott. Scott's design leans towards a tranquil Asian ambience. She transforms the garage by removing the ivy and installing a trellis system where she plants lemon trees and an apple tree. Flagstone stepping stones gracefully lead into the yard and provide a bridge over a rill that ends in a little stone pond. A contemporary water feature, known as a "falling cloth" in Japan, infuses an Asian accent. Debbie and Steven now have their very own backyard sanctuary where they truly relax and enjoy nature.
