Elegant, Multi-Zone Backyard

Plants define eating and lounging spaces.

In this luxe Toronto yard, eating, lounging and entertaining spaces are delineated using plants. A relaxed dining table occupies one corner of the paved patio, separated from the grassy area by a low-key water feature. Right outside of the house, another paved terrace is bordered by lush trees and climbing roses, which soften the effect of the red brick walls.
