This project for an elaborate courtyard came to us after the homeowners debated purchasing a new home. Instead they decided to revamp the landscaping of their home that they had already spent 20 years in, so they could enjoy spending the rest of their lives in it.
The homeowners love to cook and entertain, so an outdoor kitchen and bar were a big part of the design plan. It was also essential to create several outdoor living areas where the homeowners and their guests could entertain and relax.
After scraping the old landscaping, we engineered and built a 6 feet high cinderblock wall with stucco to surround the entire backyard. The bulk and mass of stone and concrete offers the highest level of privacy while giving a cozy courtyard feel.
An elegant full outdoor kitchen overlooks the living space. A Viking stainless steel grill head was incorporated to match warming drawer, sink, and a 6-foot-wide service bar. The service bar allows the chef to entertain with the guests while doing preparation work.
A large stone fireplace with a built-in flagstone hearth for sitting was attached to the garage. It has a 14 feet high functioning chimney, adding to the grand scale of the fire feature and the landscape.
Custom ironwork specifically designed and fabricated was worked in throughout the project, including on the custom wooden double gate. Grape clusters and leaves were used to create a Tuscan feel. The filled bottom panels offer privacy, while the top was left open so they could see when a guest arrives.
Landscape lighting was installed to allow enjoyment of the landscape whether it's day or night. Low voltage lighting used in the water feature has a dynamic effect, illuminating the sheets of water as the light dances across the reservoir top and throwing light over the stucco walls and the surrounding landscape.
