This one is long and narrow but I like the planters ideas, and having the lighting embedded in the decking. Wouldn't use the pebbles, etc. at the end.
Don't you just love the way these low LED lights cast patterns across the rock pathway? We install low-voltage landscape lighting in the Minneapolis MN area; we can design a look like this for you. http://www.aldmn.com
outdoor slat wall + planter box. Would be cool on side by Sonia and Bruce's house to act as privacy wall and give me a little planting.
