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 …

Level playing field

Front yard play space. The homeowners had three non-negotiable goals: The front yard must be level so their two young children can play ball. The front yard needs to be completely enclosed for the containment of their playing children and two dogs. All the while, the landscape needs to be in concert with the Country French style of the home. There were two …

Historic garden restored

Renovating and updating, while preserving the charm. The goal of this project was to renovate, restore, and update an historic garden dating back more than a hundred years. Originally begun in 1904, this garden was the subject of several books and the scene of many important parties through the 1920s, ’30s, and early ’40s; think Great Gatsby meets Appalachia. However, …

Pairing landscape with architecture

Timeless and classic front landscape The existing front landscape offered mix of grade changes, low walls, overgrown plant material, and bare landscape bed areas.   Additionally, a driveway in disrepair and outdated accents on the home decreased the visual curb appeal. Our design removed the front lawn terrace concept and the front landscape beds and re-graded the lawn areas for a …

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 …

Taming the slope

Gaining entertainment space. The homeowner requested a formal back yard with a pool and areas for entertaining. The property was sloped approximately 5.5′ from the upper back yard to the lower back yard so we began by creating terraced areas that would serve as large landings for lounging and a progression through the garden for access from the back screened …

Outdoor living space

Back yard transformed. These homeowners dreamed of adding a pool and outdoor living space to their back yard. They did some research online and provided us with sample photos from Houzz.com. The project was made more difficult because the back yard sloped downhill five feet from the house. By adding the pool with a raised bond beam for the sheer descent waterfalls, …
