Architect Mary Barensfeld designed this steeply sloping rear garden for a young family in the Berkeley Hills. The confident, tectonic design is composed of an ipe deck next to the house; a patch of white-granite patio stone, cut to match the boards of the deck; a slender, trapezoidal reflecting pool between the two; and a terraced hillside.

Inside the street-level entrance of a renovated 18th-century flat in the middle of Barcelona sits a lush collection of potted plants.

A petite Upper East Side garden designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects features three ginkgo biloba trees, an existing fountain with an Italian marble spout designed by Thomas Woltz, and bluestone pavers. The terrace is filled with woodland greenery: Leucothoe, ostrich ferns, and lady ferns. B&B Italia Outdoor’s Canasta sofa by Patricia Urquiola offers a perch for relaxing.
