Henderson's garden plan

Tuscan dining: The plan

An outdoor dining area and a conversation area make up Hendershot's casual, Tuscan-style patio.

There's also an outdoor bed, where Hendershot sleeps on balmy summer nights. A rock wall separates the living areas from a lower patio.

To give the garden understated elegance at night, Hendershot installed only a couple of landscape lights ― one at the base of the pepper tree, the other at the base of an oak.

They're directed up into the tree canopies, bathing the shapely branches in soft light. Candles and Moroccan lanterns provide the rest of the night lighting.
