This project provided lots of opportunity to create a variety of outdoor spaces. An outdoor dining area was created in a beautiful garden space that allowed us to create shade and privacy. The forced walkout basement became a feature when we tiered it back to allow more light to the basement as well as providing nice views to the stepped planting areas from inside the house. This is a great sun pocket for outdoor living on marginal days. Receation is a big part of this familiy’s llife, so a large lawn area allows for all kinds of sports, while a putting green provides entertainment for the adults and children. A large raised garden area provides a variety of vegetables for the family,while a herb garden close to the kitchen provides easy access to fresh herbs.
