Whimsical Estate

A yard for gatherings

This family defines the ideals of being a family. We felt privileged to be a part of this project with them. This stunning house was their own design and just needed some thoughtful and creative design in the rear yard to match the taste of the house itself. With active children and a strong social life, they needed a yard which would cater to gatherings, both intimate and large, as well as stay functional for their children to play in. A new large outdoor kitchen is framed by a brick and paneled backdrop, giving the space its own character. A new coved outdoor dining area replete with shade enclosure and exterior chandelier provides the ample space needed to host guests and for the family to enjoy outdoor dining. After dinner, the family can retire to the new firepit lounge area. Bistro string lighting overhead lends the soft warm ambience at night, giving the whole yard a cozy and inviting feel. An expanded grass space leaves ample room for the kids to play and larger events to be held. Framing the yard is a mix of plantings, which while being water and maintenance friendly, accent the home and property perfectly. Our only regret is that this project had to come to an end. We truly love this family!
