Outdoor Living

Created in August 2009


This alfresco outdoor entertaining landscape was designed to immediately complement a newly constructed house. Built in August 2009, the images you see here are from December 2011, two years later. This garden has established nicely (which is always a consideration).

In addition to an external kitchen and bar, there’s a recreational area for the kids providing a basketball ring and synthetic grass putting green.

The striking clay warrior is authentic – shipped from China.

This garden is featured in two magazines, Backyard Garden & Design Ideas plus Best Outdoors Magazine. Download the full articles here:

Two low bowls spill water gently into ponds, while subtle lighting highlights the water and tree features. Stack stone feature panels match the front of the house, and a wide hardwood front fence makes a seamless landscape transition from the front to the back of the property.
