Lutze Property West Linn Oregon
Brambles to Beautiful
What can a landscape design plan do for a backyard? Completely Transform it! Like in this steep hillside lot – loaded with shrubs, trees and scraggly vine covered terrain – REMODELED – into a useful 4-level backyard living space.
The lowest level received an out-&-out facelift with retaining walls, pea gravel, hardscape, and concrete seatwalls w/stair steps. Add a kids play area and this family spot is perfect for afternoon/evening outdoors enjoyment. A bright umbrella, throw pillows, small firepit, and smores station add ambiance and infuses color! (Later when the kids turn teen-age, this large play area can be remodeled into a sports court.)
A unique feature for the second level up – renovating the concrete patio by sneaking-in an exercise room with sauna. Enclosing this patio, it becomes an in-house fitness gym for the family. Kids can use it right along with Mom & Dad to play in or benefit from their parents healthy example. Sauna anyone? The health benefits of using a sauna at the end of your workout/work day – can be beneficial for your health.
What a fantastic facelift for a sagging, overgrown hillside! Lower-level: Outdoor Living Area, Next an Exercise Room, and then to the third level – an Outdoor Lounge and Dining Area. A relaxing reverie for all ages – under a colorful umbrella next to the rail to peer over and watch the goings-on. Use the dining table for game playing or bar-b-que eats. Ideal destination for Oldies . . . let the kids run Up-In-Out-&-Down!
Top level – sliding glass door off the family kitchen to a deck showing off a bar table, lounger, plantings and Fish Pizza Oven . . . Fun in the sun with the added delight of a wood-fired pizza oven – Delish!
There you have it – a REVAMP of extraordinary proportions. Turning an unfunctional hillside of brambles – into an everyday exceptional use of space.
Happy Summer Lutze Family! We love your Hillside Transformation Extraordinaire!
