The owners of this home love to garden and spend time outdoors. This nearly 3,000 sq. ft. tri-level outdoor living area allows them to pursue these interests on a daily basis.
Organically shaped garden beds create a curving border that complements the natural setting of the home. The materials chosen for the project also reflect a preference for a natural look. The main patio features oversized Grand Milestone Pavers™ paver in mottled hues which complements the home’s wood siding. Their parallel placement creates a visual effect like that of flowing water. Similar shades of gray and brown also appear in the tumbled County Block® used for the custom outdoor kitchen counters, and in the pavers in the lower patio and walkways.
Split faced County Block® were used in the retaining wall and steps, and a rustic, light-colored Destination Pavers™ in the planter borders continue the natural look and coordinate with the natural boulder landscaping found elsewhere on the site. A rustic outdoor fireplace provides a focal point in back of the house, balanced on either side by the hot tub and outdoor kitchen.
One unique feature of the upper level is the 12’ x 16’ greenhouse accessible from the home, providing a gradual transition from interior to exterior space.
The project’s construction was as organic as its appearance. The homeowners were very involved in the design, and met with the contractor on a daily basis. Many changes and additions were made as the project progressed; having a small crew allowed flexibility on the project.
