This Backyard was built for fun. This project was four years in the making. Original plans simply called for a larger patio to accommodate party guests. After a few family meetings, plans changed drastically.

Apart from the occasional plane overhead, you wouldn’t know this back yard was close to a bustling metro area. Neighboring homes can’t be seen but this is party central. The pool, hot tub, boulder fire rock, and outdoor living spaces are a magnet for friends and neighbors. Three school-age children – active in sports and community – and their parents spend time here whenever possible.
- The boulder fire rock is custom-made. Blue fire glass is a colorful addition instead of the standard clay/mesh logs.
- The outdoor shower is a basalt column, approximately 7’ tall, and fitted with plumbing.
- A stone path leads guests around the side of the home, down boulder steps to the pool area.
- Worked with county officials on swimming pool placement and setbacks.
- His and hers tikis were purchased by the homeowners in the Bahamas and not part of the original design.
You, too, can have a resort-like atmosphere in your back yard! Southview's designers will help your landscape dreams come true.
