This design features a unique fireplace that was built to enhance the existing porch and large boulders to help give structure and shape to the landscape. A clean color palate is evident throughout key features (the fence, outdoor kitchen and Patina metal wall) to bring the whole design together.
The biggest challenge on this project was related to water drainage issues. We created a design that solved the drainage problem through a gradual grade change from the house which also allowed for a functional backyard space. Along with the special grading, we added steps and levels to also add a unique feel to the design. This maximized the usable space with a very linear design, keeping key features along one side of the yard and creating additional usable lawn space.
