Use Your House Look at the lines of your home -- it might give you the perfect spot to place a deck (and make mowing or other yard-maintenance chores easier to boot). This deck-and-pergola combination, for example, is a perfect solution for an odd space.
Floor Designs Ideas: A pathway lined in brick with stepping stones and pebble filler.real bricks, limestone rocks from back yard, and that nasty pea gravel i hate.hmmm maybe it will look better in the front yard.
use curved landscape border, fill in with dwarf shrubs, ground cover, steeping stones and mulch/rock. Only rocks for the stepping stones, bricks instead of steeping stones and a potted plant where the maple tree is.
