This Small Backyard In San Francisco Was Designed For Entertaining

This modern landscaped backyard has a raised outdoor lounge deck, a wood burning firepit, succulents, bamboo and a vegetable garden.

 

SEED Studio, a landscape design company in California, has created a multi-tiered backyard oasis for a house in San Francisco.

 

The couple that live in the house wanted to have a garden that could entertain large gatherings, but at the same time feel intimate for when it is just the two of them.

The backyard has been split by height and by materials to allow for different areas to be defined. Gravel has been used for the firepit level, while wood has been used for the upper level. A path made from pavers connect the different spaces.
