this is an entirely different context but I like the idea of a defined shape of lawn, a oval or kidney bean or similar with plantings around it. The "courtyard" entry space is a big missed opportunity as it isn't truly a is part of many other spaces The courtyard will really set up the entry to the home and view of the lake so is important.
