Gardening – A California-Inspired Family Backyard

Posted on
Landscape architect Joel Loblaw proves that size doesn’t matter with this incredible small backyard transformation. See how he creates a fun space for a family, which may not include much greenery, but instead entertains with a pool, a lounge area and an upper terrace for dining.

Joel added California flair to this small city backyard with a mix of rustic and modern materials for an eclectic look. A stained black fence surrounds the space, while Dutch-modern horizontal lines calm down the lounge area by the pool. Old-patina tin from the ‘30s on the side of the garage and a corten steel wall add warmth to the outdoor dining space, which is separated from the rest of the backyard by glass.
