This young couple approached us and stated they wanted to see an outdoor entertainment area with a contemporary style in their backyard. They wanted no grass in their small backyard in the middle of a busy subdivision, a raised vegetable garden, extra privacy, a sunken hot tub, a beautiful pergola, easy overall maintenance, and shade for a very sunny yard. Some of the challenges that we faced in this small backyard were backyard access, drainage issues, and clay soil.
Privacy was created with the planting of large trees, the Shade FX system on their pergola, the sunken nature of the hot tub, and the frosted glass panels surrounding the hot tub.
Next, due to the backyard being relatively flat and predominantly clay subsoil drainage was a huge consideration. The sub drainage system design collected and moved the water to the drainage swales as needed. The raised vegetable garden allowed for the client to still grow produce without having grass, and yet still have the backyard of their dreams. The pergola that was designed for the backyard creates a very warm, homey feel to it, and has the shade FX installed on it which can create a very shady spot for the couple to relax on a hot day. Overall, this backyard turned out perfectly for the clients and to this day they are still thrilled with the results.
