    • Focal point. The shape fits nicely with the space available.

    • Even in the winter landscape, thought should be given to color. The color of this evergreen shows better with the background of rock rather than simply crawling over mulch.

    • Ilex spp. Winter color - shows well against a background of evergreens.

    • One wonders which is the stronger of the two elements, the hardscape or the plant material.

    • Stone stairs and retaining wall serve same function as concrete, but much more interesting
      • Photo: Chris Butkovich
    • The large expanse of retaining wall is softened by the curves. The pergola gives those below a sense of privacy, and some protection from the elements.

    • Irregular blocks give the feel of a natural stone wall, but is much easier to work with then different sizes of stone.

    • The walkway and retaining wall are very functional. The curve in the retaining wall gives the area a casual feel, even though the plantings behind are very formal. The two different materials contrast nicely.

    • The arbors act as a doorway, leading into or out of a room.
      • Photo: Chris Butkovich
    • Nice use of hardscape to represent a stream in nature
      • Photo: Chris Butkovich
    • A formal walkway is made less so by its curves
      • Photo: Chris Biutkovich
    • The arbor invites one to walk through and the curve in the path encourages you to find out what is beyond
