Create a sleek, modern place to entertain, relax and enjoy the outdoors in the sunshine and under cover. This blank slate of a backyard is brimming with possibility.
A corrugated metal and cedar fence will replace existing chainlink, providing a stunning backdrop for the new garden. A large, permeable paver and gravel patio replaces the worn concrete pad. Space for a future party shed is planned in one corner of the garden, strategically blocking the view of barking dogs nearby. A mini-lawn with hammock in another corner provides a quiet spot for afternoon naps. New plantings include slender weeping Alaska cedars, paperbark maples, ferns, springtime bulbs, and grasses Panicum 'Northwind,' Bouteloua 'Blonde Ambition' and Dechampsia cespitosa 'Goldtau' to provide movement and texture to the garden. This DIY couple will install their slice of modern beauty over time.
