To create a functional and inviting garden for a family of five. The garden will be used for entertaining friends and family, and as a space to relax during the family’s down time.
Part of the garden was built above a sloping rock that supported the foundation for the home. A small natural spring ran through the back yard causing poor drainage. This spring needed to be redirected to allow for a new 8’ x 140’ structural retaining wall to support the garden from the neighbouring property.
The Final Product
The curvilinear design allowed for a cozy seating area with a fire pit off the cantilevered deck, and a hot tub perched above the garden with mountain views. For privacy, a yew hedge and flagstone path were installed down the property line.
Finishing touches included a new driveway, a dry riverbed and landscape lighting throughout.
