Fresh-Air Sanctuary

Hardscaping for a sloped or hilly backyard can be a challenge and require a little extra brain power and manpower but a task we are more than willing to tackle. Often, the end result is more than you could have ever envisioned from the start, and this project is testament to that. Take a look at the end result and see how this family reclaimed their backyard space!

Location:

Project Type:
Gas Fire-Pit Overlook, Natural Stone Steps, Belgard Paver Flooring, Veneer Stone Walls

Project Overview

This backyard was virtually unusable before we started installation but after the first inspection, we knew how much potential existed. Not to mention it had a beautiful forest view that transported you elsewhere! To kick off the project, we installed a barrier wall in the driveway to keep cars at safe distance from the slope and then flagstone with stone slab steppers accented by a river rock creek bed that descended to the backyard entertaining space.

Uneven landscape like this can be particularly pesky when designing a backyard but not the be-all and end-all. We took a virtually unusable environment and made it functional.

The entertaining expanse included a dining space and lookout nook complete with a seat wall to take in the tranquil view. A cozy gas fire pit was also installed, ready to be ignited on both warm and cold nights and a grill area was tucked neatly in a corner. Belgard paver flooring was used for the project space as well as an overlay on the existing concrete patio.

Seating Area

The seating area is framed in with beautifully designed masonry and accessed via the natural stone stair treads and accent boulders.
