Flowers are up front in today's landscape plans. No longer hidden away in backyard borders, annuals and perennials are getting the streetside exposure they deserve.

A BACKYARD HAVEN IN THE WOODS

Weekends are made for outdoor gatherings, say Dick and Terri Bowman. From early spring to late fall, they keep the "home fires" burning in their backyard fire pit for frequent houseguests.

Here's more happy news: Because the three styles are created with furniture rather than extensive remodeling, they're not only easy to accomplish, but you also can pack up your style and take it along if you move on.
