Pleasant Grove Residence Continued

One of the many things that makes this yard great, is having different sitting areas like this paver patio, placed throughout the yard. Natural gas fire pit surrounded by stamped concrete.
The custom pergola provides shade for entertaining or just sitting poolside.
The hot tub and fire pit are next to the pool. The fire pit adds ambience to evening entertaining.

Pleasant Grove Residence

This landscape is a perfect example of a "Staycation" yard. There is no need to leave the comfort of your home for a summer vacation. Complete with a trampoline, hot tub, fire pit, and swimming pool, who would want to leave?
The rock steps lead up to the trampoline pit. A flowing sidewalk goes around the entire back yard, and leads to the fire pit, grow boxes, hot tub, and swimming pool.

Timber grow boxes are surrounded by black cobble with weed fabric underneath to prevent weeds. Rock steps lead up from the sidewalk to a flagstone path and onto the fire pit.

Highland Residence

Flagstone paths are a great option for a walkway instead of plain concrete. They add an extra dimension to the landscape.
This is an example of a masonry fire pit surrounded by flagstone with sod between each stone. Groundcover such as wooly thyme & moss could be used as well.

Irish Moss, Scottish Moss, or thyme can also be used between flagstones.
Custom rock steps can be used instead of concrete. This gives the landscape a softer, more natural look.

Flag Poles & Fire Pits

There are items that can be installed into your landscape that can add to the look and living space to your yard. A flagpole can serve as more than just a place to display your national flag but one homeowner uses their flagpole as a way to notify neighbors. One flag represents that everyone is invited to come and use the family's pool and another flag says that the pool is closed.
We install flag poles of different heights & finishes. A bronze finish is shown here.

Installation of a firepit will definitely extend your living space from inside of the home to outside. Depending on the type of firepit that you choose will result in how you will use the area. We install a variety fire pits (more pictures will be posted soon). Shown here is an ASHbash fire pit with a tumbled block surround. ASHbash can also be used for a BBQ, Dutch Oven, and the perfect fire pit for roasting marshmallows.
