An Arizona landscaper shows how to banish clutter from your life (or at least your backyard)
The patio floor is unpatterned concrete in pristine white.
The chairs and tables, from the 1966 Collection by Richard Schultz, are also white.
Why it works: Neutral colors are restful to look at, and here, they frame views rather than compete with them.
Adapt the idea: Try pewter-colored furniture with blue-gray cushions on bluestone pavers, or teak with sandy peach fabric on Arizona flagstone.
