Private Hardscaped Backyard

Climbing hydrangea balances a mostly stone space.

Climbing hydrangea softens the effect of hardscaping while amping up privacy. One sun-soaked corner of the space is devoted to relaxation, with Belgian sofas made of sturdy teak and cosy, colourful pillows. A koi pond separates that corner from the rest of the yard, which is devoted to dining and entertaining.
