Let these outdoor design ideas for shrubbery, walkways, and more inspire you to create your own beautiful backyard garden or front lawn oasis.

Patio Roses

A former city-slicker traded her urban digs for an English country home. To tap into the exterior’s full curb appeal, she added a perfectly positioned rose arch along the patio door frame (along with one cute pooch!).
