Small Yard Transformation: Before

Small Yard Transformation: Before

The Challenge:
Our Client hired us to design an outdoor living space, with a kitchen, hot tub, dining and lounging area, sitting area, fire for warmth and a water feature. An extended roof covers a patio, large enough for the dining area. The rest of the improvements had to fit into a townhouse yard, 23’ wide x 30’ long.

The Solution:
To maximize use of the space, we angled the kitchen and hot tub so the improvements weren’t crowded. This technique made the fence line look longer and opened up beds for plantings. We surrounded the fire/water feature, by a sitting area, and placed it in the far back of the yard as a destination point; its orientation parallel to the fence for spatial distance.
