Work Begins on the Backyard January 10, 2011

A potential backyard design that we decided not to go with

Above is a rendering we had drawn up by a local landscape architect. Fortunately, we decided to go in another direction given two factors. The first being an outrageous price for a simple design, and the second being, we can do better. Our design is going to be much more sleek and modern with more of a post-modern feel. We will contract out the hardscape work to an experienced mason but we are going to take care of the rest.

Since the back of the house has been undergoing renovations we have been slow in the past few months, but we’re hoping to pickup again here soon. Our contractor is just finishing up so hopefully the ground will warm up again here soon and we can get rolling.

For now, take a look at the work we started a few months back.

I’m excited to see the plans you’ve created for your front yard. I’m sure it will look great.

Hey John

Nice work there.

Just one question tho, how do you support the side bench ?

It looks like it is only supported by the L frame, but strong enough to support 1 fully grown man weigh

There is a metal I-Beam that is embedded into the wall that supports the bench. We’ve had a few people sit on there with no problems at all.
