The front yard retained most of its grass to fit in with the context, but we added accent plantings to set the property apart.
At the back of the house, a path arcs through interesting plants.

Private Residence

The landscape for this suburban home had to fit smoothly within its context while providing a unique experience for the clients.  There were also a number of uses that had to be accommodated, including a new detached garage.  We worked with the client to create a design that provided several distinct outdoor rooms, each providing a different use, but tied together visually as a coherent package.

  • Location: Wasatch Front, UT
  • Status: Schematic Design Complete
  • Budget: $50k
  • Overall aerial view of the design.
  • The front yard retained most of its grass to fit in with the context, but we added accent plantings to set the property apart.
  • At the back of the house, a path arcs through interesting plants.
  • The clients desired a new detached garage with easy access to the street, but minimal visual impact.
  • The new front yard path leads the eye along the planted areas and suggests more interest around the corner.
  • Emerging from the back yard, we wanted to take advantage of the lawn area to create a sense of opening.
  • The view from inside the house, to the new deck and beyond.
  • At the back of the house, a formerly unused area has been transformed into a pleasant spot for sitting or walking.
