A quaint perfect space

Like the staff at Outdoor Dreams, this client is a hard-working professional that wanted a place to escape the daily grind. Our client was fortunate enough to have an existing screen porch, but the remainder of her yard was left unfinished by the builder. Her backyard was narrow, exposed on all three sides to neighbors and a cul-de-sac. Additionally, the builders final grade left her with an oddly sloped and poorly drained backyard. With the design, we aimed to create a more private, intimate space that provided room for lounging and dining. Additionally, our client had a special feature that she wanted to work into the space.

As you can see in the photos, the result was a quaint, perfect space. The hardscape is composed of BLU 60 slabs and a two-toned Villagio paver border. The walls and pillars are a creative combination of Manchester and Mini Creta Wall blocks; this unique combination provides an attractive texture contrast. Included in the hardscape is a creative arbor-covered swing, fire pit and new, curved steps down from the porch.

For the landscape, we created a low maintenance mix of trees and shrubs that will provide interest throughout the year and privacy on all three sides of the property. Our client was impressed by the thoroughness of our crew and thrilled with the outcome!
