Entertainer's Back Yard - Before and After3 Photos
The client wanted designated areas for entertaining, relaxing and a raised vegetable garden. We removed all of the client's grass and replaced it with decomposed granite pathways, poured in place concrete pads with river rock and planters with drought-tolerant plantings and mulch. We also added a small low-maintenance, recirculating fountain as the final element of the garden. We kept a small patch of grass in front of the fountain at the client's request.

The client wanted to have separate areas for entertaining and relaxing in a small space. The space was divided to include a private nook at the end, a raised vegetable garden, and a dramatic entry into the space with large poured-in-place concrete pavers and river pebbles to accommodate outdoor seating and dining.

Raised Vegetable Garden - After

This raised vegetable garden was created with railroad ties. A drip irrigation system was also installed that was easy to use and adjust based on the plant selections to be grown. A decomposed granite pathway was installed around the garden and a planter bed was installed behind the garden to grow up and provide color and screening to the adjacent property.
