Like the defined spaces -- just dressed up enough, not too formal but organized and structured.
Like this as an example for the front.
Another from this project -- it's a good one to reference. The wall height and plant material look good. For the back patio, we'd rather a cap on the wall.
We like this stacked stone, but doesn't have to be so flat. We like the idea of a drip line around the house that is of crushed stone, but not the black stone.
We like the shape of this fireplace, with the wood storage on the sides possibly. Not sure about the heights, though. Stone should limestone.
Like this walk way and the simple greens.
I mentioned these containers as an idea
