Back Yard Retreat

Backyard Retreat

This house was newly constructed. The homeowner called Elegant Estates to install a paver walkway and foundation plantings around the front of their home. We designed a Belgard Dublin Cobble modular paver with soldier course walkway and steps. The existing concrete entryway was overlaid with pavers to match the sidewalk. Landscape plantings were designed and installed to match the scale of the house.

The following year, the homeowner called us back to install a backyard "retreat". The grade was difficult to traffic by foot, so we came up with a solution. We designed a staircase and landing system that led from the upper deck to the lower patio surface. A reinforced retaining wall was installed to hold back the grade under the deck. On the way down the staircase, we designed and installed a low maintenance pondless waterfall which can be enjoyed on the way to the patio firepit. The hardscaping was softened with deer resistant plantings that coincided with the front landscape theme.
