Designs installed by Homeowners
Curb Appeal & Function all in one!
Opportunity: big enclosed bed, want to add curb appeal and a place to sit in the evenings
Solution: a small paver patio, water feature to drown out sounds, plants & perennials galore to bring in the curb appeal
A Gabion Raised Garden Bed
Opportunity: sunny property with a lot of grade change, want to create an entire produce garden without the stooping and kneeling
Solution: gabion raised garden beds
Cozy Courtyard Hang-out
Opportunity: A wonderful private space but it’s a complete jungle of a mess and can only be used in the summer and warmer days in spring and fall because of this homes geographic location.
Solution: expand the concrete pad with pavers, build a pergola, add a relaxing glider, firepits (yes, more than 1!) and lighting
Relaxing Bird-watching Retreat
Opportunity: An almost large patio, huge oak tree perfect for birds, incomplete space to relax, cook, eat or entertain, ugly light, unneeded sandbox and a messed up threshold…no problem!
Solution: made the current patio larger with pavers, functional & good looking furniture, a warm firepit that can also act as a table top, and planters full of colorful perennials and solar ball jars. Now this is a space they can kick back and enjoy bird watching & hanging out! The final touches were a new patio light and a threshold capable of handling wear and tear.
Raised Garden Retreat
Opportunity: nice area for the garden but fragmented and without a plan, dislike the fencing and the constant battle with the weeds!
Solution: a thick aggregate ground covering with raised garden beds, a firepit and seating for the kids to come hang with mom and dad (until they can be recruited to help!!!)
Low Maintenance Plants Colorado Style
Opportunity: lacking definition to property lines, struggling to grow grass… wanting a low maintenance solution to grass.
Solution: incorporate natural aggregates as the ground cover, utilizing a flat paver style block to separate the lawn from the plants, corner fence line, and fill the bed with colorful trees, shrubs and perennials with low water & maintenance requirements
A Patio Expansion for Gardening & Relaxing!
Opportunity: great space to grade papers, work in the garden and finally relax with family but missing most the components to do these things
Solution: expand the patio with pavers, build a firepit & separate sitting area, build a potting table for future raised garden beds
A little lift here, a little lift there…
Opportunity: newly purchased home in need of love inside and out! This WA couple bought this corner lot for investment purposes but want to enjoy it for themselves as well!
Wanting to get the most bang for their buck, my design focused on curb appeal and a space to hang out in the backyard w/ friends!
Solution: simply adding a split rail fence and transplanting existing plants helped tremendously with the curb appeal. The backyard needed a little more help, with the replacement of old wood with retaining wall block.
Adding a pattern of larger pavers to a gravel patio space provides a cost effective way to create a stylish look.
