Outdoor living and entertaining were high on the clients' list for this backyard. The new design organizes the backyard into active and low-use zones that correspond to the interior usage of the house, optimizing indoor/outdoor flow. The barbecue, outdoor fireplace, breakfast deck and steel arbor extend the kitchen and family room, while the spa and woodland planting reflect the serenity of the bedroom. A linear decking element acts as a spine, running from the spa area and across the water feature to the trellised fireplace patio.
