Creating A Backyard Paradise For The Bryant Family

Here’s a quick example of the kinds of projects we’re regularly called upon to assist with. The Bryant family was unhappy with their backyard. Blessed with a growing number of grandchildren, they wanted to transform the space into a private paradise they could use for outdoor entertaining.

They had a clear vision of what they wanted, and their wish list included a nice lawn, bounded by a privacy fence and an expansive patio to spend time on.

Projects like these are puzzles, and we love putting our heads together with our clients to work out how best to bring their vision to life.

The addition of the privacy fence was straightforward enough, but to create the patio space the Bryant family wanted, after a survey of their yard, we decided that the best way to implement the patio was to build a low retaining wall to serve as a boundary, which would simultaneously hold back the sloping yard.

A few steps to lead from the patio to the yard itself, attractive pavers for the patio, and the selective relocation of some shrubs that were already present, and all of the elements began to come together. At that point, it was a simple matter of adding some decorative planters with brightly colored flowers and a bit of patio furniture, and the space was utterly transformed.

Best of all, because of the slope of their yard, the Bryant family had an issue with water pooling up near their house after periods of heavy rain. The retaining wall and landscape drainage system took care of that too!

We love landscaping projects that are both beautiful, and serve a practical purpose, and that’s exactly what this project became. Once the last piece was in place and the clean up complete, the Bryants were ready for some outdoor entertaining. They were thrilled with the job!

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
