Gardening – A California-Inspired Family Backyard
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.
Exterior Design – DIY Small Patio Makeover On A Budget
Need an outdoor place to dine, but lack the space? Get design ideas from H&H's Lauren Petroff and learn how she updated her small city patio on a budget with inexpensive materials, DIY projects, and affordable finds.
Now that it's officially summer, Lauren felt it was time to inject a little bit of personality and function into her characterless patio. A dark blue lattice panel, divider, and cover for the air conditioning unit adds architectural interest to space.
The elongated bench, built by Lauren, acts as a lounging spot and as storage, but can also be used for extra seating
at the dining table. The glass top, black frame dining set adds a sleek and contemporary vibe to the overall look of the patio. The backdrop of cedars is a great, low maintenance option for greenery.
