This is a wonderfully sculpted backyard and courtyard that uses some inexpensive methods to make this yard look luxurious and magical. The stonework at that little island is nothing fancy, yet it elevates the space dramatically. I am a big fan of stonework, and what I love is that it appears they used some natural rocks from a quarry. This is a very cheap way to build a little island like this in your yard. The bark dust is also fairly cheap. It also makes it so that yard maintenance is low cost and impact. The trees and lawn are lovely as well.
