we have a large open yard that is narrow, but long, its like looking out onto a football field, just under 2 acres in the back yard, about half of it sparsely wooded. The big problem I see is the pool, we like to have the view into the open space of the backyard but also are looking for a little more privacy, the area from the lanai to the raised pool deck will also be a challenge cause water seems to run toward the house in the spring and summer thunderstorms here in FL. The pool sits approximately 3 feet higher than the back of the home. The wood pile can be moved, but it currently acts as a privacy barrier from the 100 yds of open space to the neighbors driveway. Ideally we would like a deck versus pavers. We are Zone 9 for plant ideas, it does freeze here but only a few nights each year here is a short video of the yard, please excuse the green pool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA4czArQxJI
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
Landscapes are usually most stunning during those times of the year when you can actually see the ground. But there is an eerie beauty to a yard covered in freshly fallen snow as well.
