A Small Backyard
This small backyard landscape plan is comfortable all year round, and enlivened with seasonal displays of color a fragrance.
Free Garden Plan
Our free Planting Guide for this landscape plan includes a larger version of the illustration, a detailed layout diagram, a set of five regional plant lists, lists of alternatives for each plant, and complete instructions for installing the garden. (Free, one-time registration allows unlimited access to Planting Guides for all garden and landscape plans.)
This backyard landscape plan includes workspaces for composting, parking, storage, and family entertaining. The design offers a comfortable seating area that is incorporated into traffic patterns to the garage and house, but hides compost, potting, and storage areas which are still easy to get to. The patio is great for the weekend barbecues or morning coffee.
