The Pacific Northwest’s Favorite Backyard
Complementing the clients’ home is this beautiful and functional backyard. Their wish list for a dream backyard included a large patio and seating area around a fire pit, access to the yard from the bottom floor of the home, a new deck with steps to provide access to the yard from the second floor, and a level area for a play structure that could one day become a sport court once the kids grow up.
Starting with an unusable sloped lawn, Alderwood’s team transformed this space in just 12 weeks after working with the clients to perfect the design. Work was completed on time and on budget for between $100-150,000. The large natural stone patio and custom stone fire pit surrounded by a natural rock outcropping is the focal point of this backyard resort which perfectly defines the Pacific Northwest aesthetic. Seasonal plants and ornamental trees soften the rock features while offering much-desired privacy while maintaining good Western exposure.
