Backyard Water Feature – Outdoor Living
We love this Backyard Water Feature. It’s funny how nature can soothe and relax the senses. Is it the fresh air with faint breeze or the quiet stillness that makes it so calming? Just being outside affects your sense of well-being. These savvy homeowners knew they loved being outdoors with friends and family so they met with our designers to create a landscape design unique to them.
Choosing an outdoor living space on the upper deck directly off the kitchen allowed for ease of dining while entertaining. The dining space transitions to a cozy living area with a grand wood-burning fireplace. The TV screen can be seen from all seats of the deck for game viewing. For those who love to stand and shoot the breeze, the view of the landscape below and of the horizon is breath-taking.
This SW Hills landscape design is impeccable with its precise borders and beautiful selection of plantings. The front lawn has architectural slab walkways and the side lawn, perfect garden beds. (The mistress of the house is fond of white plants and you can see her footprint throughout the design layout)
Below the entertainment deck, the hardscaped patio offers additional places to find a retreat. What suits you’re fancy? A seat around the crackling firepit . . . a place at the bistro table enjoying the playful waterfall . . . or relaxing on a lounger to watch the sunset?
