Outdoor Inspiration

The weather is just gorgeous and, if it weren't for all that yucky yellow stuff, just perfect. Our outdoor areas are taking shape... I've been having fun finding images for landscaping/hardscaping inspiration. I am a fair-weather gardener and groundskeeper, so I've been searching for plants and materials that withstand some neglect. (Thus the large amount of low-mainenance, drought-resistant pea gravel we recently installed.)
The first pics are from the website of an eco-concious landscape/building design co. in LA, Dry Design. The rest are from back issue of the late-great Domino magazine. I love the combination of soft and hard materials, the designation of areas by function, and the clean lines of the space.
