After: Outdoor Entertaining
Since the couple loves Italy, landscape designer Lisa Wheeler creates a Mediterranean garden. A flagstone patio adds a rustic vibe and an entertainment center to the yard. The newly built redwood arbor is covered with climbing vines to add to the old world feel. In addition, it helps contain the space and creates an outdoor space. For a unique touch, they build an outdoor sofa out of concrete and redwood into the retaining wall.
The perfect idea for an inexpensive and modestly-sized plant for a patio container: growing landscape trees from seed.
