A very busy family with five kids called us in to solve their cramped backyard problem. With only two small decks and a backyard that sloped to the woods behind them, they needed more outdoor space for their large family and many friends.
Before: Sloped backyard with small and enclosed decks and patio.
After: Mulit-level paver patio with sleek modern lines.
Multi-level patio with three seating areas, expertly laid paver patterns, and symmetrical garden boxes teeming with ornamental vines, grasses, and flowers.
The spacious patio can be used for hosting graduation parties, ice
cream socials, receptions, or simply a regular weeknight family dinner. Because
the space is open and none of the is furniture fixed, the space can be
reconfigured over and over.
Relaxing outdoor living room with a rainbow backdrop of
ornamental plantings. There is plenty of room to add chairs when more friends
come over, or lounge solo all weekend long.
The theme of simplicity with modern details continues on the
lower-level patio. Pavers laid out in a 45° running bond pattern
create a sense of movement and make the space seem larger. To keep the patio
looking sleek and streamlined, the wood-burning fire pit is set flush with the patio.
Southview maintains this backyard with weekly service. Our professional team stocked this unique corten steel planter with a multicolored explosion of coleus, purple fountain grass, petunias, potato vines, palms, lantana, and begonia.
Grasses visually soften the top edge of the four-foot Versalok modular concrete block wall. Steps provide easy access to the deck from the yard.
Working through uncooperative weather and into December, our designer and installation crews went the extra mile (or ten) to create this suburban luxury landscape.
Your perfect outdoor living space begins with a simple conversation. Let’s talk about your landscaping project!
