These two outdoor designs of all the many wonderful designs by Horticulturalist and Landscape Designer, Jamie Durie were the ones that caught my attention. I really love the blending of different textures and the simplicity of the design.
I love how the crushed quarts and boulders were combined to make a drama effect. The use of wooden flooring made the entire design of the outdoor garden unique and easy to maintain. I never realized that woods can be substituted to bermudagrass for your lawn. I was just only thinking that it would be nice if it would be a covered lawn to increase the life span of the wooden floor.
The idea of putting up a stand alone fire place made up of rocks and stones made this outdoor garden truly exceptional. The built in bench in an irregular shape adorned with colorful throw pillows complement the entire set up. Very simple but very elegant!
