backyard inspiration {jamie durie}

{i am now a monthly contributor to the eco18 blog! check out my first post here if you missed my wheatgrass how to post a while back}

i was catching up on my better homes and gardens magazine the other day and their article about hgtv star jamie durie’s backyard stopped me in my tracks. shut the front back door. it’s one of the most gorgeous and perfect backyards i have ever seen. i have backyard envy.

(either i can’t search bhg’s site well enough to find digital copies of their photos or they don’t have their issue articles online, so i did some googling and found additional, non-scanned photos)




i’m not going to lie, i don’t know who jamie durie is apart from the fact that he’s a (seemingly very talented) landscape designer and on hgtv, but i want his backyard. i would never leave it. it’s officially in the inspiration files and is definitely something to aspire to (though i live in illinois and am not a famous landscape designer on tv, so we’ll see how that goes).
