Terraced Backyard Escape

These clients’ vision for a mountain retreat backyard surrounding their natural style home was finally completed in 2015. After checking out our transformation of their neighbors’ backyard, they knew exactly what they wanted: a multi-purpose, beautiful landscape that enhanced their home’s architecture, accented by a private mountain retreat feel.

Upon realizing that Alderwood could make their dream resort a reality, our clients requested 2 years of phased work.

Before remodeling, the property had limited patio space, unused areas, and builder-grade materials. Each deadline and phase of the design/build process over the years was met on time and on budget. The project encompassed the entire property including both and front and back yards.

The new front yard enhances their mountain-style home with multiple natural stone patios and walkways, custom exterior lighting, and premium plants and trees.

The backyard’s design captures the clients’ ideal retreat with spacious views, a large stone patio for entertaining, a perched stone fire pit centerpiece, and a natural waterfall with an artificial creek, complete with rock outcroppings. Extensive custom lighting, natural-looking grading, and premium plantings also complement the home’s natural setting.
