Project Details

A beautiful, newly constructed home in the Gibsonia area with a blank canvas was presented to us to design and build a wonderful complete outdoor space to compliment the home and suit the family's needs. The front of the home was landscaped with a variety of plant material to complement the architecture of the home and create stunning curb appeal.

LED lighting was added to the front and back of the home for an elegant night time appearance. The back of the home had a custom family fun style pool installed with hot tub. Paver patio space wrapped the entire pool area to accommodate furniture and ample access around the pool. Directly off the left side of the pool, a custom pavilion area sits two feet above the water surface. Under the pavilion, a bathroom and storage area sits to the right.

A wood burning fireplace sits in the center of the entertainment area with a built- in TV that can be seen from the hot tub area.

An outdoor kitchen that includes a natural gas grill, cook top, refrigerator, storage drawers, ice maker, and trash compartment were added. A bar area overlooks the pool and a area was especially built for a ten person dining table that can overlook the pool area and waterfall. In the back of the property, a fire pit area was tucked into the landscape with a view of the waterfall for great wilderness setting a night time.

A magnificent waterfall was constructed into the existing hillside which created a great backdrop for the overall back yard with beautiful visibility and sound that the customers could enjoy not only throughout the backyard, but the great room of the house and even their master bedroom. Spacious landscape beds were added throughout the backyard to accent the hardscape areas and waterfall with a variety of height, color, and mass while incorporated with large boulders.
