Kathy and Michael wanted to leave the city and go to the burbs to get a larger yard and more family suited community.
They were really fun to work with because they knew what they wanted but had NO IDEA of how to implement it in design. The process started with the wish list. Open space for kids to run and play, outdoor room, fire and water features, and level it out. The slope was so great we had to put 2 tiered retaining walls in, proper drainage and the shape of the lot was a typical pie shape (court lot).
We went with a modern paver, cultured stone veneer to match stone on the house. Kathy wanted lots of color and mixed plantings, so I made to the blend in lots of color, textures and varieties. We made great use out of all their space. We spoke recently and Kathy and Michael told me they truly love their entire yard from the front to the open lawn for the kids, to the veggie garden and the outdoor living patio. It’s considered by the neighbors to be the nicest landscaped yard on the block!!! Success!!
