The ultimate outdoor living space

After gophers destroyed their backyard, Evelyn Huang and Jack Mangan of Pleasant Hill, California, set out to redo the scruffy plot.

Landscape architect Joseph Huettl gave them that and more, turning the small yard into the ultimate outdoor living space. Now the two spend much of their time here.
