Details make the difference. For our client’s home, creating a gorgeous landscape required infusing nature with a little bit of magic. The homeowners reached out to us to conceptualize a backyard alongside their soon-to-be-installed pool. The yard at that time was a blank slate, with hills, objects that needed to be hidden, a wood line along the rear, and a homeowner looking for a backyard retreat.
The excavation of the pool itself had left the homeowners with a significant amount of additional earth. Fortunately, rather than paying to have it disposed of, we were able to re-purpose it in order to create the hillside waterfall.
Working with a property that features varying grades and elevations is always a challenge. Steep lawns can be hard to maintain, hard to landscape, and hard to make use of. But with the right perspective, you can achieve excellent results by working with your space and not against it.
