Everyone is focused on making the most of their outdoor spaces right now—whether it’s a sprawling lawn or narrow patio. A new initiative from Yardzen is here to help you spruce them up. In partnership with Crate & Barrel and CB2, the landscape planning platform is launching an all-in-one design package, making it easier than ever to order an entire backyard online. 

Here’s how it works: During your consultation, Yardzen’s designers and architects will create a custom design and help you choose everything from the plants to the decking to specific furniture and decor from Crate & Barrel and CB2. You can then purchase those pieces directly and get connected with local contractors to pull the finished product together.  

The fun part? Dreaming the whole thing up—maybe your ideal exterior includes a pizza garden for your little ones or an indoor-outdoor dining area for summer suppers under the stars. For smaller yards, steal a page from Whitney Leigh Morris’s playbook and install a vertical lattice for climbing greenery. Yardzen’s new one-stop shop can make any mood board come to life. 

It’s hammer time: Follow @reno_notebook for easy rental updates, clever DIYs, and tips to nail your next project.
