Early summer blooms are cool in the garden. Color can have more impact on the landscape than any other design element. Annual flowers can provide landscaped areas with more seasonal variety and colorful accents than most other plants.
Tim Barber, of Tim Barber Ltd. "In Southern California, we look for opportunities for outdoor living everywhere. A brick fireplace, a white-painted pergola and a bluestone terrace added to an unused spot behind the home to create the perfect destination for afternoon lemonade or cocktails at sunset. The wet-rated chandelier, easy-care teak furniture and performance fabrics make this outdoor space strictly low-maintenance."
