About the Project:

This backyard makeover was located in Richmond Hill. With a list of wants from the home owners we were able to create a design that included everything. Previously this property was all grass and was ready for its makeover.

A large pergola extension off of the house was created to not only create a impact when entering the backyard but to also act as a shade to keep you cool when dining or relaxing. Mood string lighting was installed to keep things light at night. Large outdoor dining area to enjoy and entertain with family and friends. Outdoor natural gas fire pit to keep everyone warm during the cooler nights.

A stepping stone walkway separates the dining and lounge patio with the pool area. The large pool paio contains a modular sone pattern. A fiberglass in ground pool was installed with corner steps, lights and benches ensuring everyone can have a seat, relax and stay cool on those hot summer days.

Gardens, greenery and lighting surround the property softening up the landscape. A small storage/change room was created for storage and the ease of family and friends wanting to swim.
