Landscape designer Laura Schaub's design includes a variety of rustic ideas that take advantage of the redwood trees. For a grander entrance into the yard, the picket gate is repaired and leads to a redwood slope with stone steps. Jasmine grows around the rustic teepee, providing an interesting focal point and a great place for the kids to play.
