The owners were downsizing from a fabulous older home to a brand new smaller home where they could leave the maintenance and go on more world adventures as retirement was just around the corner. The clients valued their outdoor space and enjoyed spending time outdoors. On the wish list was a built-in-BBQ, fire pit, hot tub, privacy, water feature and low maintenance. The challenge- a very small back yard!
With the initial design concept approved, the overall completed design and material choices were completed. The installation commenced and provided a sunken hot tub, covered BBQ area, a discreet rock bubbler and a stone fire pit. A new hedge was installed to complement the raised seating wall and help create the outdoor room feel. A lattice trellis was added to provide privacy for the spa as well as a home for the climbing plants. With the low maintenance patios and walls, there was still room for some raised stone garden walls which soften the hardness with texture and color. Overall the small space now feels like a much larger space as well as incorporating all of the client’s wishes. Whether BBQing under cover on a rainy day, unwinding in the spa or sitting around the warmth of a fire in the summer evenings, this space serves as a functional space as well as a beautiful space.
