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.

Unique Environmental Landscapes

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 foundation of the house to the property line.

Maximizing the space and creating an entertainment area were the overall objectives of this project, which meant constructing a small fireplace and grill area.

We incorporated their existing water fountain into the patio space to create a focal point when looking down from the area beneath the deck, where a dining table is positioned.

Radius steps from the upper patio underneath the deck create a dining area that flows out into the lower patio. A small sitting area above looks down at the small fireplace, allowing multiple vantage points to sit and enjoy this now-usable back yard.

Planting areas were minimal but screening the adjacent home was a very big concern, so we used Green Giant Arborvitae, Emerald Green Arborvitae, and pure middle European Hornbeams.

Lighting was also an important element to make the space usable at night. The radius steps have lights incorporated into the step treads, along with accent lighting to further increase visibility at night.
