The Hardscape in this yard is a wet-dry-lay flagstone called OS bucksin square-cut. Has a great mix of brown-beige-grey. There is a wide variety of plants but of note in this design is the boxwoods that border the flagstone circle, the climbing rose that will ascend the house (next year, got planted to late to climb this year), clematis that have begun to cover the wrought iron fence, and the beautiful standard korean lilacs. There is a nice combination of spots and well lights to illuminate the landscape at night. This yard shows you can still do a lot with a small space.
