One of our favorite projects this summer came from a back yard in North Cherry Hills. A modern and upscale approach is easier said than done when considering condensed or tight spaces. So how do you broaden the effect on the viewer, yet keep it clean? Start with the senses- as humans we’re naturally drawn to the elements. In this case we used a sky fountain water feature to trickle over some home grown Colorado river rocks. Feel the tranquility? Well just hold on to that zen while the pour in place concrete fire pit crackles in the background. Suddenly that unattended corner of your backyard becomes a personal sanctuary.
So kick back and relax… if your toes catch fire, extinguish them promptly. You can thank us later.
Here in Colorado we like to take full advantage of our outdoor living spaces. This is a beautiful example how to compliment your home and garden by creating a transition between the two spaces. This raised flagstone patio feels much more like an extension of the house because of the overhead arbor and surrounding seat walls. We have enhanced the atmosphere and ultimately tied in the indoor/ outdoor experience by the presence of a water feature that also serves as a focal point for the dining area.
Whether entertaining dinner guests with an outdoor kitchen, or just enjoying your summer evenings; you’ll find a new favorite place to gather and enjoy our 300 days of sunshine in comfort and style.
