In This Segment

Landscape architect Mark Hartley outlines his transformation of an urban backyard into a serene space for entertaining, lounging and swimming. See how he created levels descending from the house to the pool, connected indoor and outdoor styles, designated a covered patio for dining and planted lush greenery for colour and privacy.

See more of this backyard in our July 2012 issue.
