Our Client expressed to us their desire to develop their backyard into an inviting outdoor environment where they could relax and entertain. They wished to include a pool, incorporate the existing spa, create a BBQ & outdoor kitchen, create a gathering space around a fire feature, and develop a separate area as a dog run. Drainage was a big issue and required extensive planning, as there were minimal areas in the yard to incorporate drains. All of these elements needed to fit into the small backyard and side yard spaces; a challenging design task.

In response to the Clients’ back yard wishes, our design team commenced layout by developing separate “zones” that depicted the approximate needed square feet per zone, and utilizing every square inch of available space. The pool and spa were placed in the far corners of the required property line setbacks. Furthermore, the covered BBQ patio was placed close to the existing kitchen for ease of circulation. The planning phase also considered how the new back yard area would connect to the interior of the house through materials, views, and circulation. New materials were specifically chosen for their longevity and ability to withstand the elements. A linear expansion joint drain was used to remove the runoff water from the back yard. Design elements such as the built in low voltage lights and exterior grade ceiling fan were incorporated to promote usability and enjoyment of the space.
