Courtyard with gravel paths and beds edged in brick - really like the gravel, but maybe too casual to use in courtyard/patio area? Like the boxwoods. Also like the flowers, but they would not always be blooming Love using the pea gravel!!
I'd want more space for Elason to play in the courtyard but I like the outdoor retreat feeling for her in the middle of the city. Nature (and open floor plan) is the main reason we want this house. -Beth
