Entertainer's Back Yard - Renewed and Refreshed
This project was originally installed in 2011. Since then, the client has done an extensive residential remodel and wanted to refresh the space. The original layout remained except adding one more poured-in-place concrete pad and removing some of the existing driveway concrete. Everything but the remaining trees, hedge along the garage wall, and the raised vegetable garden were left intact. We needed to open up the space as the original hedge had served its purpose to screen the next door neighbor's residence. The original tree has grown beautifully to screen the building rooftops and provide shade and movement in the space. By changing out the hedge with a dwarf tree variety, the feeling of space will be maintained even when the trees mature. They will no longer obscure the view of the large tree and keep an "open" feeling to the space.
