  • A Blank Canvas for Immediate Dreams, This is our front & back yard. Truly a site for some immediate assistance. Since we are planning to marry in September, we would love to have our reception in our backyard, but we have got our work cut out for us! We began on the fence early 2009, but money ran short and we haven't quite found the time/money to complete the cap and staining of the rest of the fence.  We also have two outside dogs and one indoor dog. The two stay happily outside in their make-shift pen we have constructed, we need to get them some shade and a nice cool wading pool for them to play in., Yards Design

  • Back Deck and Fence Area, Pictures are of and look out from my back deck.  The house next door is too close.  I need to increase my privacy along the fence line without it looking like a sore thumb.  Any suggestions?  Also I think the wall to the left of the slider needs something like a Hoosier or Baker's rack.  Thoughts?  And the wall to the right could use "something."  Thoughts??  I'm open to any and all suggestions.  Thanks for the help., Patios & Decks Design

  • Safety First, Party Pool with Privacy Fence, My Uncle Joe put in a pool in his backyard for the family to enjoy but he was really concerned about the safety of the young children in the family. He put in a vinyl railing and gate around the pool and for added privacy a fence around the perimeter. It worked out really well. The family loves it! , Pools Design

  • No Privacy...!!!, My yard is really bad.  My fence is so brittle that it is coming apart and hanging by nails.  There are holes in the fence.  I could climb into my neighbors yard if i wanted to, and visa versa.  The concrete is all cracked and breaking up.  Stray cats roam through my yard and i have found them on my chairs constantly.  They leave feces and constantly go through my garbage.  My 1 and 1/2 year old son can only play in a certain area and i constantly have to keep my eyes on him.   Its embarassing to have bbqs outside with family and friends.  I have no privacy and sometimes don't even want to be out there, even though my son does.  , Yards Design

  • Our Garden Oasis. A work in progress., We have been trying to fix up our backyard for the last two years and decided that this year (our 3rd living in this house) was the year we were going to make it happen. 

We had our vinyl fence installed a month ago and just finished building our patio in the rear of the yard (First time ever building a stone patio!)

We assembled our gazebo and just laid down grass seeds across the space to try and grow some grass before the hot summer months.

The pictures show our space as it is now, a work in progress. 

We are now in search of ideas, tips, suggestions for what to do with the yard to tie it all together. We want the garden to pop with vibrant life and color but don't know where to start. We have about a 4' by 15' patch of ground behind the gazebo that we think we'd like to use to plant some colorful shrubs, plants and trees and maybe a fountain or water fixture or maybe a fire pit.

We have another smaller paved area (15' x 5') at the front of the yard before the deck which we keep our gas grill on and set up some seating but we'd like to transform this area as well into a more comfortable seating area that can be used to relax and entertain guest.

We then have a nice sized deck area attached to the back of house. This space is about 15' x 16' and we have a double size outdoor sofa and our 6 seat table here. again, looking for ideas to make this all pop and come together with life and warmth and color that inviting and relaxing for nights together or nights shared with family and friends., Gardens Design

  • Sm Yard, 1 Person + 2 Seasons = High impact, low maint. oasis, Gecko approved!  From YAWN to private retreat in small yard.  Look through pictures, then read about the process below.  Proves yard doesn’t have to be large to make a style statement and create a mood!  (See BEFORE to appreciate changes and MORE in PATIO collection for related – context.)  

The process:
DEMO - 
1.  Took out property line trees and chain link fence, also removed three small trees (including stump grinding) from my back yard to clear the slate.  Nurtured grass back to that part of  yard.  
2.  Dug many weeds to the roots (some seriously wicked weeds) and cleaned up a gnarly, neglected back property line space.  (This took a lot of sessions over 2007 summer.)
3.  Removed leaning pine from caddy-corner neighbor’s yard (with permission-by pros) leaning toward my new house.  4 properties benefitted from no more needles, particularly by Back Yard neighbor with a pool (filter routinely clogged).  These pines are not storm tolerant to say the least.

REBUILD / foundational PROGRESS work (2007) -
1.  Privacy Fence and irrigation system added, with bubblers for palm trees (hired pros). 
2.  Planted 5 SABAL Palm Trees (hired pros) in a stretched dice pattern across back.  (The FL and SC state tree – storm resistant.)  
3.  Added solar (but bright) uplighting to palms (tested several before finding some bright enough – they’re LED) – also in front. 

Bed Plantings (2008)
1.  White Oleander for additional green, natural fence, white blooms, around center palm.  (See how small they were when planted and watch them grow over one season!)
4.  Clematis varieties at each back corner with a trellis.  They are vines that pack a big punch of color when they bloom and come back every spring.  (Have 1 6” bloom at 1-2-09, even though most of the vine has browned out for winter.  It’s not dead.)
5.  Split leaf philodendron back left from a sad start (see before pic) that was given to me by a friend that moved away.  It was indoors in a pot and not looking hot.  In one year outside, it’s become incredible and thriving!  Plant lovers – DO take a look…
6.  Bird of paradise back right.  (Gave it room to grow, anticipating growth explosion next season!)

Hardscape (2008) - Added continuous concrete border in curvy pattern to offset the back bed (also did front beds).

Incrementally CONTINUED THROUGHOUT – 
1.  Forever (it seemed) dug out sod FOR the EVER – expanding & shaping landscape beds (front and back) throughout the process.  Trust me when I say this is harder than it sounds, particularly in Florida heat, in the short window between work and dark.  Result paid off!  I reused the sod in various spots around my yard and donated to other people’s yards to fill bad spots.  
2.  Built the beds RIGHT with landscape fabric and mulch for weed stop.
