Vacation at Home

This backyard renovation included the installation of a 100-foot stream down one side of the property and landscaping meant to give the feel of a woodland escape. Says HGTV fan lross7577, "We don't have to travel far from our suburban home outside the city of Minneapolis to get a wonderful cabin retreat experience. We just walk out our back door."

Eight-Sided Pavilion

This beautiful pavilion, designed by Keith Anderson, is the focal point of the European-garden section of a Colorado landscape. In the planting beds on either side, 'Winter Gem' boxwoods serve as the "bones" of the plantings while cockspur hawthorn trees provide colorful winter berries.

Southwestern Garden

In the same landscape, landscape architect Keith Anderson also created this Southwest garden, complete with "musicians." Along with the Asian- and European-style gardens, the entire landscape fits into an acre lot. Social events held in the three spaces have seen up to 270 people at one time in the garden.
