Despite being relatively small, this elegant garden, created by Richard Lusk Landscape and Design, features 3 different spaces — a dining area, a remarkable paved lawn, and colorful plantings - creating 3 levels of interest and breaking up an otherwise dull rectangular plot.

The tile pattern of the lawn appears to elongate the dimensions of the garden. And the raised deck adds a different spatial effect, contributing to making the yard look much bigger than it really is. Two precious design elements which contribute to the loveliness of this backyard.
