Tucked in a quiet neighborhood on Meydenbauer Bay, this backyard provides the perfect entertaining space for long summer barbecues and cozy fall evenings! With a fire pit, extensive paver patio, and dreamy outdoor kitchen, the amenities in this space are worth a closer look!
When these homeowners attended their initial consultation with our architect, they expressed their primary goal for the landscape was a livable area where they could enjoy their view of Meydenbauer Bay year-round. As a large family, a functional space for the kids to play and the adults to entertain was essential. Our clients also wanted seasonal color in the landscape, with plenty of native plantings in and around the property.
Since the house sits on a hill off a steep access road, this project came with some inherent challenges. The only way crews could get to the property was by a narrow, dead-end side road. Because of this, our team had to efficiently plan the delivery of materials and equipment. With the proper planning and set-up, our crews completed the job without any unforeseen issues.
Beautiful white porcelain pavers extend throughout the project for a simple, clean-looking, and easy-to-maintain design. We worked with the natural grade by adding stairs. These also separated the kids' space and kept the hot tub at a more accessible, natural-looking height. Since the homeowners planned to eventually add exterior doors out to the main outdoor living area, our architect designed the landscape with this in mind. The fire pit area is out of the way of the future doors yet still easily accessible. It also provides the perfect vantage point from the client's favorite swinging bench overlooking the fire pit to the property's immaculate lake view.
The finished backyard space meets our homeowner's needs flawlessly. From enjoying the lake view by the fire to watching the kids' basketball game from the hot tub, there are several picture-perfect places for this family to make memories for years to come!
