Back yards are used for recreation, photography, gardening, and renewal of the mind through nature, entertainment, and change of scenery.

Your back yard is going to be uniquely designed for you and any others you include. In order to help design that perfect back yard we will need to understand how you expect to use the space.


Entertainment tends to be one of the most popular ways to use a back yard. Having guests over for different occasions will lead a person to look at a space differently. Lets say one of your guests wanders over to the door at the back of the home to look outside, which often happens. At the window the guest will either encounter a view that is welcoming and causes them to open the door or they may witness a scene that is not so inviting. We would hope the view would entice them to just have to open the door to see more and even interact with the space like sitting on a wall or strolling down a path.


From volleyball, frisbee and football, to playing horseshoes, an open area in the back yard space can give you more uses than one without a green flat surface. Boulders, walls, shrubs, and other objects make the perfect place for a game of hide and seek. Having a professional landscape designer discuss the uses of your property with you can ensure these things are thought of and planned for.


A beautiful fireplace is the ultimate in a backdrop for family photos, or an amazing perennial garden with butterflies for summertime pictures of the children. A fire pit and a glass of wine with an amazing pergola in the background can help a couple to take photos that save memories for a lifetime. Be sure to tell us of all of the possible uses of the space like taking special photos etc.


It is very popular to include a few edible plants in today’s landscape design. A back yard is the perfect place for a raised planter where you can go out and pick some fresh basil, rosemary, thyme, and a hand full of tomatoes. Maybe your passion isn’t food plantings; but flowers and having some of your favorites is just what the doctor ordered after a hard day at work. If you are failing to plan then by default you are planning to fail. We can help make sure those favorites are in your future.

Change of Scenery

Sometimes you just have to get out of the house after work. A full day of busyness at work and a trip home through traffic can leave the mind dulled and exhausted. It is scientifically proven that spending a few minutes in a natural space where trees and other plants are present relaxes the mind and refreshes the spirit bringing focus and energy back. Let us create your energizing space in the back yard where the your batteries can get recharged.

Your perfect back yard space.
