This family entertains guests at their home on a wide variety of occasions and they had a desire to host many functions outdoors when the weather permits. Although they had a nice existing pond feature which was worthy of salvaging, much of the back yard was due for an upgrade. The resulting design accentuates the axis from the back door to the pond location with the new fire pit placement and paving material selection. All the materials used in the design can already be found on the site. The brick pavers match the veneer on the house, the accent brick pavers match the accent brick on the house and the limestone is present in various retaining walls around the site.
