Outdoor spaces that flow

Multiple outdoor rooms that work together. The homeowner wanted to create multiple outdoor individually themed rooms that connected with seamless sightlines. The goal was an outdoor experience used for entertainment. The main “living” area is a bluestone patio connected directly to the home. Prior to the project, the fireplace was functional on the interior of the home only. The patio …

Blank slate turned sanctuary

Formal outdoor space blends with stately home. These two empty-nesters with a love of gardens wanted to create a sanctuary of their own, and their yard was a blank slate.  Using materials that blend with the existing architecture, and formal geometry that maximizes the limited available space, this design creates a seamless extension of the elegant residence while fulfilling the …

Minimal maintenance, water smart

Private garden tailored to homeowners’ life. The new homeowners’ main objective was to transform the small lot into a private garden that they could enjoy with minimal maintenance, as they planned to do almost all of the maintenance themselves. They wanted a small sitting area in the front yard to relax and see neighbors as they walked along the street. …

Wide appeal in narrow space

Maximum outdoor living. This small in-town yard (a little over 2000 sq. ft.) did nothing for the homeowner as far as usability and entertainment. There was a very small concrete back patio beneath the deck and the rest of the yard sloped away or uphill, making it unusable. The back yard and side yard are very narrow, with about 14 feet from the …

Embracing the lake

Making the connection. This homeowner wanted to feel a personal connection to the lake that borders his property. His main objective was to create an outdoor room for cooking and dining that did not block his view of the lake from inside or outside his home. The existing concrete slab was too small to be useful. We converted it into a functional, attractive cooking area …

Small space, big impact

Cozy contemporary outdoor space. This small suburban back yard was mainly a leftover spot dominated by out-of-scale screening trees that made it feel like it was in a huge hole, a deck too small to accommodate more than two or three people, and no gardening space to speak of. Our clients like to visit with friends and family out of …

Like it’s always been there

New outdoor living space that blends in. A complete side-yard renovation project, inclusive of an architecture remodel and addition, this project met the aesthetic-appeal and outdoor living goals of the homeowners. The bluestone terrace allows for outdoor casual conversation seating, a grilling area, and is complimented by a secondary pea gravel dining space, framed in bluestone to carry a cohesive …

Enhancing the entrance

Making this home’s entrance safe and beautiful. This project was a complete residential makeover. We designed the residence to have form and function. The retaining walls, steps, and walkways were dilapidated and unusable. From start to finish, the design enhanced the entire entrance to the home. This was the beginning of the rip-out process: removing leaves, old shrubs and retaining …

Expanded pool deck

More space for entertaining and relaxing. This homeowner asked us to create more area for entertaining guests around the pool deck space. They also wanted to update the landscaping around the pool to incorporate more color. The client did not want to refurbish the entire pool deck so we introduced a different type of flagstone that would work well with …

Landscape renovation

Landscape is transformed in stages. After purchasing this hidden gem in a prominent Atlanta community, the owners wanted to remodel the outside of the home in phases. This allowed for stretching the budget and keeping some of the plants that wouldn’t get overgrown again for many years. Since the property hadn’t been lived in for several years, the landscape needed …
