A large patio design gave our clients in North Arlington, Virginia the space they desired for entertainment and play. Well-designed hardscapes and landscaping added the perfect element of flow and privacy to this backyard landscape design. It was this element of thoughtful design, combined with careful planning and execution, that allowed us to overcome previously existing issues with improper drainage and failing hardscapes.
In the end, we were able to resolve the challenges associated with a overgrown landscape and create a secluded oasis in their backyard space.
The Patio Space
To give our clients plenty of room for outdoor entertainment and play, we created a large patio space in their North Arlington backyard landscape design. Built from the finest Belgard Lafette rustic slab paver, the patio offers a beautiful, rustic look and plenty of room for a grilling station and retaining wall. The grill station features stainless steel appliances and custom flagstone counter space.
A large, flat play area gives the children plenty of room for outdoor activities. The stone retaining wall creates a level space while built-in water features, complete with integrated lighting, enhance the aesthetic and provide year-round visual interest. The water features are low-maintenance and remote control operated.
The wall and grill station were built on steel reinforced concrete footings with cinder block backings and faced with a mix of Maryland building stone and dove grey building stone. They are capped with thermal flagstone.
The Landscaping & Plantings
The surrounding landscaping further enhances the year-round visual interest established by the water features and hardscapes. A range of colorful flowers and greenery offers seasonal color and provides an additional element of privacy.
Nearby, a wood chipped area was built to accommodate a swing set. A pathway guides visitors from the home, through the landscaping, and to the patio area.
The lawn space was sodded so that our clients could enjoy their new backyard landscape design in North Arlington, VA from day one.
