Landscape makeover over design…what comes to mind in these few words? With most, its likely dreaming of a redesign, tearing out a yard and starting from scratch. In this case we jump straight to the design and GREEN LIGHT…GO!!! Working with a great client in their new home virgin yard, they were the perfect.
Troy a graphic artist and Jackie a dedicated full time nurse aloud us the privilege of bringing their vision to life. Our initial meeting was a Q&A of what they wanted in the dream yard landscape makeover design. Once they spelled out their details, we ran with it, developed a plan (see attached) signed the contact and got to it. With the exception of dealing with weather, the main concept was to retrain the rear slope so they had more usable yard space. We designed a two tiered retaining wall system allowing for a built in water element, grass area for boccie ball and horseshoes and a top tier for citrus trees and gardening.
The greatest part was the lowest back yard was increased by over 6 feet. We built everything they wanted for the perfect out door party. A huge covered patio with vaulted ceilings and open trusses, a bar and bar-b-Que area, lawn and best of all a open out door fire place element. The nicest touch was a sheer decent water element flowing from the lowest retaining wall next to the patio for refreshing ambiance.
Besides the meandering path lights and all the tree up lighting which created picturesque mood lights, we also custom built all the furniture to their specs and color coordinated the flowers and with red bursting accents. By building the furniture to spec, we were able to tie all the materials together as well as build in a custom ice tray on the main table to chill refreshing beverages for guests…
Color coordinated red tin bar stools, market umbrella and Adirondack chairs were all added as a finishing touch building a great back yard landscape makeover design giving Troy and Jackie exactly what they wanted.
For us the greatest reward were the smiles on their faces.
