Decked out back yard

Making more space to enjoy the outdoors. When these owners purchased the home, the pool had minimal decking only on one side. Past the pool area, there was no useable space due to a strong slope in the upper turf area. We created pool decking to include all four sides using Travertine for an updated modern look. We built a …

Patio solves slope and shade

Terraced outdoor space for coffee and happy hours. The backyard was a complete oversight on the behalf of the builder. First, he installed Bermuda sod in a completely shaded backyard – destined to doom. Having worked with our firm previously, the homeowner already knew this would be a problem and contacted us upon the closing. She also knew if the …

This allowed for stretching the budget and keeping some of the plants that wouldn’t get overgrown again for many years. Since the home hadn’t been lived in for several years, the …

Re-designed for flow

Small in-town space turned functional. The homeowner had just finished the expansion of their outdoor sunroom and wanted to pull together the back yard to create a more functional garden space. We had previously completed a similar project for her next-door neighbor, so she was familiar with the elements she wanted to incorporate into her project. The yard was poorly sectioned by an …

Additionally, a rear terrace in disrepair and poor transitions between existing outdoor spaces rendered this property mostly unused. Our design removed the rear landscape terrace, steps, and pond; soil …
