There are several important features within a natural look
~Raised beds with a variety of elevation changes for effective plant display.
~Use of various sized boulders adds texture and assist in elevation changes. They provide a great backdrop and create "nooks and crannies" for planting your favorite annuals and perennials.
~A dry creek bed with a variety of rocks, boulders, and gravel
can add interest and create additional planting areas.
~Flagstone, rather than concrete or brick pavers, for patios and
walkways invites nature right into your backyard.
As you might suspect, this natural look is difficult to put on
paper. It must be visualized and created with feel. The touch
of an artist is required rather than the skill of a landscape
