2009 Idea Home: Chicago Remodel
Make a plan
Idea Home: Mariani Landscaping designed a backyard that includes four pear trees for privacy from adjacent apartment buildings, along with an assortment of colorful-foliage perennials that take the place of annual flowers. Belgard pavers form a central patio, allowing water to drain into the ground and reduce runoff. Gloster outdoor furniture provides plenty of stylish seating for gatherings.
Your home: Redefine outdoor living spaces. Whether you host parties, want a private getaway, or love to putter in a vegetable garden, replotting yard space can make your home feel twice as big.
