Landscape Design: Koi Pond, Putting Green, & Firepit

Welcome to a tour of the Chau property in Happy Valley, Oregon. This landscape design is full of family oriented details. Let’s begin with the spacious living and dining area. Because this space is in-use with tricycles, small bikes and toddler equipment, keeping the hardscape free to maneuver is essential for this family.  The pizza oven is piping hot and keeps the pizza coming. An extended seat wall from the Koi Pond along the entire fence line offers additional seating as it wraps in a semi-circle around the firepit.

Kid time is number one in this landscape with not only a play structure, picnic table and lounge chairs, but a two-story mini-home with a slide… it was added for endless hours of play. Watching these happy children in this outdoor environment was one of the best parts of this photo shoot!

Child’s Play Structure & Play House

If you are a golf putting fanatic or you want to perfect your chip shot, this landscape has it covered. At the base of a flowing water feature, take your position and go-for-it! How fun is this? Tucked to the side of the property but ever so cool for guests . . . or just for yourselves.

A spectacular Koi pond is another highlight in this landscape. Positioned close to the Pergola and Outdoor Living room, this pond boasts Koi fish gifted from past generations and they are huge! The dining area is set on the opposite side of the Koi pond for extra enjoyment while dining.

Whoa – this landscape has the ability to totally relax the senses…. On one side of the koi pond, languish and watch the fun of golf attempts or engage in everyday interchange …. or on the other side, the quiet and peaceful flow becomes dinner ambiance . . . . Landscapes like this one are great for day time fun and activity or as dusk sets in and the moon shines….it becomes breathtaking.
