Poolside landscaping in Arizona with feature boulders on the edge of
the pool. A gradual succession of plants lead the eye so nicely into the mountain backdrop. A great example of distal (near/far) balance in designing that incorporates features outside the yard into the view.

Backyard putting greens have become a great low maintenance way of adding another feature to your yard. Adding some small shrubs and a few boulders in the decorative rock is a great way to soften things up.
Notice how things were also left open along the fence to enjoy the
beautiful open air mountain view.
