Hillside Backyard Renovation

Complementing these clients’ gorgeous home is this beautiful and functional backyard. Their wish list for a dream backyard included a large patio and seating area around a fire pit, access to the yard from the bottom floor of the home, a new deck with a staircase, and a level area for a kids' play structure.

Starting with an unusable sloped lawn, Alderwood’s team transformed this space in just 12 weeks. The large natural stone patio and custom stone fire pit surrounded by a rock outcropping is the focal point of this perfectly defined Pacific Northwest space. Seasonal plants and ornamental trees soften the rock features while offering much-desired privacy and maintaining Western exposure.
