Our clients came to us looking for an entire backyard makeover. They had been searching for a new property and concluded that their own home had so many good attributes that remodeling was their best option. Adjacent to a large parcel of preserved land, the design of the backyard includes stone and lawn paths that all point visually towards a large, preserved wetland and natural area.
Generous mass planting schemes evoke the natural area’s vegetation. Shrubs buffer the neighbors while meadow perennials soften fencing designed to be transparent. The pool placement to the east side of the property highlights the one open sweep of lawn to the west.
Given the freedom to design every detail of the backyard, we finessed grading, created boundary fences, shaped the contours of the pool, and added night lighting. Our installation of the hardscape and landscape transformed the backyard into the calm oasis that our clients now rave about.
