Chris and Arlene have been living in their beautiful home for 13 years, and last year they put in a new lawn for their two boys. Now, they're ready to incorporate some adult areas for entertaining and relaxing. To create a family-friendly garden, landscape designer Shelley Somersett integrates a new lawn with comfortable seating, entertaining and dining areas.
Low-cost additions like cottage birdhouses and a rustic window box help carry the cottage-garden theme.
