After adding a porch to the second floor of this home, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri from HGTV's Cousins On Call have created two outdoor living spaces. The patio features a new fireplace and colorful accessories and furniture.
After: Lowest level at the yard's gate, middle level adds a seating area and the upper level matches the entryway. To save money, the window sashes were painted a bold red that popped against the existing house color.
Room with a View. In the garden of this Philadelphia home, the outdoor "room with a view" is canopied by a Trumpet vine, Golden Hops, and rose-bowered pergola, with concrete pavers laid down checkerboard style.
Garden Arbor with pool. The homeowner of this Connecticut cottage built a fence close to the pool for intimacy, added evergreens for year-round structure, and varied the garden palette with complementary colors. Nice landscaping around pool.
