The owners of this property in Parker had several goals they wanted to achieve in renovating their landscape; to add more curb appeal in the front of their house, increase their outdoor living space in the backyard including adding privacy, and an area for a suburban vegetable garden.
To enhance the entry, new shrubs and perennials were added to compliment the architecture and a small patio was installed to provide a shady respite from the hot afternoon sun.
In the backyard, a cluster of Austrian pines was installed to screen an open space walkway and elementary school.
A flagstone patio and fire pit along with a built in grill were added to create a new entertaining space. Dimensional red flagstone was used on the floor of the patio and chiseled veneer flagstone was used on the seat wall. Low voltage light and speakers were added to the seat wall to complete the ambience.
Raised planters were also built out of chiseled veneer flagstone to blend with the new patio. Drip irrigation was included in the beds to lower maintenance and an 18-20” height was intended to make it easier to tend to the crops.
