This is the kind of backyard landscaping that comes together nicely because of some simple techniques. The yard and the porch are level with each other, which speaks to both how well the lawn is kept, and well the concrete was laid for the porch. The patch of rocks and bark dust also add a nice flavor to the visual mosaic. What we have in effect is a nice yard with some visual diversity. I love the table and chairs on the porch, and feel that they too add a lot to eh landscape design. All in all, this is a well executed backyard landscape.
