Some things about the home will  not be exact but it should feel like the same space overall. There is a form at the bottom of this page for you to send me links or just to send a message.

First Update:

The first images are of the space without hardscape or plants.

This image below is a top down view of the back yard with pavers, fire pit, seating for eating, a grill, and wall decoration. The plants used are Hicksii Yews for a hedge, Japanese Aucuba for an evergreen that grows in a shady area. Coral Bells ( a red variety ) for some color, and Spreading Yew for another low growing evergreen.

There are also two larger plants a Japanese Maple Tree and a Hinoki Cypress.

    Dalton – thanks so much! A few notes:

    1) the hedge seems very severe. After walking the backyard more, I feel like the area with the dining table doesn’t need the hedge. The area with the fire pit to the front gate probably needs something with about 2-3 feet of additional height above the fence to create more privacy for the fire pit area. Can we do something that is less “hedge-like” and more tree like so you see the trunk at the bottom but don’t lose the leaves in winter? Do Wax Myrtles do well here? I love Crepe Myrtles but they lose their leaves in winter. Let me know your thoughts on this.

    2) I’m thinking of doing more of an L shape seating for a bench in the corner versus the diagonal one you’re showing in the pic. Can you show that on the photo as well as 3 other single chairs around the fire pit? Not sure how/if that affects the placement of the Maple and Juniper?

    3) What is the proposed material where you have the brown? I’m thinking they are planting beds but the gridlines are throwing me….

    4) I would prefer the brick walkway off the garage to come all the way across in front of the wood steps down into the backyard.

    5) I would like to go with the corrugated tin and wood around the grill vs. stonework.

    6) what is the white pyramid?

    I’ll text to confirm you get this. I’ll be available the rest of the night and into tomorrow if you want to talk live.

    I am working on the update and will be posting it soon. I removed the hedges and added two Foster Hollies for privacy at the screened in porch. The seating is changed from the wooden bench by remaking the beam you guys already have to more of a hardscape bench L shaped like you asked for with a stone veneer. The walkway is showing better and the grid lines are removed. Talk soon.

    Dalton,
    Thanks so much! I am hoping to review this with my daughter later tonight. She’s filming and I’m not sure how late she’s going. Why don’t we plan to talk tomorrow after I get her feedback?

    Dalton,
    I spoke to Hayley this morning. She has quite a few changes 🙁

    Overall, she wants less tall plants/trees and more of the farmhouse/shabby chic feel. I’ve created a pinterest page which I’m sharing with you via email with some imagery.

    1) she would prefer not to have any trees or large shrubs directly next to the main seating areas – including the bench. her main concern is to have anything that would attract bugs especially something that could fall down on her from above. i knew she was afraid of spiders but she said this is one reason she doesn’t enjoy sitting in her backyard in LA. :/
    2) she is not concerned about the privacy and wants to nix the hollys or anything tall by the fence.
    3) she doesn’t want the tall yew on the corner between the two areas. When i described that it was to visually separate the two seating areas (fire pit vs. dining area), she said she didn’t want any division.
    4) She likes the idea of having one tree in the backyard and would like to keep only the maple. Could we put it in that space between the screened in porch and the deck connecting the garage and house?
    5) she likes the tin on the grill facing. we agree that it would be great to incorporate the two small timbers on the front corners of the grill surround. I will share a pinterest page with you that has an example.
    6) she doesn’t like the brick work on the bench seating. she would prefer to have something with cushions as she sees herself spending more time in that area. i’m sharing some ideas with her via email and hope to get her to narrow down a choice on this soon. we may end up not doing any hardscape on this but instead using some kind of outdoor furniture couch/loveseat.
    9) it’s hard to tell the scale on the fire pit vs. the bench seating but if felt to her like the fire pit was too tall. she wants it to be no more than 2 feet high
    9) she likes the idea of the Hydrangea and the lenten roses.

    Call me if you want to talk through these.

    Dalton,
    We are almost there! Talked to Hayley and here are her comments.

    1) she likes the new layout a lot!
    2) could you do a dogwood or redbud in place of the hydrangea closest to the gate from the front yard? after looking at it from above, she thinks if a tree is that far down, there would be little chance of spiders or bugs falling on her. If because of shade, that’s not possible to do some kind of tree, let’s leave it as is.
    3) in the corner by the house and screened porch, instead of a shrub, we’ll look to do some kind of raised planters like the galvanized tubs I showed you.
    4) Seating – sent you an email with a photo of a built in seating (not the fireplace) that she likes. Take a look and then lets do an estimate on the built in option and I’ll compare to modular seating and she’ll decide based on price.
    5) how deep are you envisioning the mulched area between the fence and the seating? From the picture looking down from above, it appears to be really deep. I’m not sure this is to scale.

    That’s it! So what are the next steps? Estimates? Don’t forget to include the sod and sprinklers in front and side yard as well.
