Facade and rear yard makeover

Floralis Garden Design

Outdated exterior and unused rear yard are now bright and fresh. The existing rear landscape offered a mix of grade changes, low walls, overgrown plant material, an abandoned pond, and unusable landscape areas. Additionally, a rear terrace in disrepair and poor transitions between existing outdoor spaces rendered this property mostly unused. Our design removed the…

Circular stone fireplace

Art of Stone Gardening

A client in Gainesville, GA wanted a custom fireplace with a circular opening inside her home. We designed and built this vent-less gas fireplace for her. To protect the wood framing of the house from the high temperatures that fire places generate, we used an Isokern modular fireplace insert. Over top of the Isokern insert, we laid…

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…

Embracing the lake

Art of Stone Gardening

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…

Small space, big impact

Classic Landscapes

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…

We were hired to salvage as much of the original construction as possible and re-design to complete the installation. We designed the space to complement the existing building façade while using materials that are low maintenance. The fire…
