    This alfresco outdoor entertaining landscape was designed to immediately complement a newly constructed house.

    In addition to an external kitchen and bar, there's a recreational area for the kids providing a basketball ring and synthetic grass putting green.

    Two low bowls spill water gently into ponds, while subtle lighting highlights the water and tree features. Stack stone feature panels match the front of the house, and a wide hardwood front fence makes a seamless landscape transition from the front to the back of the property.

    The striking clay warrior is authentic - shipped from China.

    This garden has established nicely (which is always a consideration). The photos below were taken in late 2011, a few years into the life of the new garden.
