Love this idea. Build seating around edge of deck with planter boxes behind. Built-in planter boxes and landscape ideas. Gorgeous planter box ideas with built-in garden boxes. Lots of fun ideas, projects and tutorials.
Turn a large backyard into an outdoor living space by creating zones. THIS is what I mean by "areas" - having different zones for different furniture / purpose - love the look of solid mixed with smaller squares w/ rocks peeking out - not grey ones
