The homeowner for this project was looking to create a back yard that their family and friends could enjoy. We started the project with a blank slate as the house had just recently been finished being built. When we first looked at the project the final builder grading had not even been finished. The house had come with a nice deck but there was nothing else to draw them out into their large yard.
We worked with the home owner through several designs before reaching the perfect design for them and their family. The new design connected the deck to the walkout basement with a walkway and slab style steps. The walkway leads to a large patio. The patio was extended underneath the deck to add additional space. Retaining walls were installed to allow the patio to extend into this space. These walls also double as sitting walls. With this layout we had a post and footer that feel in the patio space. We turned this into a focal point of the design by designing a table around the pillar. Overall for the project we used a mix of man made and natural materials throughout the design to give this project a unique feel.
In the end we created a beautiful place for this family to enjoy for years to come.
