What this yard does right is create both a little forest for a yard, while at the same time making it so that it is as low maintenance as possible. I love the trees in the yard and the way the lead to what looks like a sizeable expanse of wilderness in the background. At the same time I love the gravel and the bricks that have been laid down. This just goes to show that you can easily combine artificial with natural elements and create a cohesive design for your yard. I love the deck, and think it would e a very comfortable place to hang out.
