Backyard Pergola

 

This residential backyard was essentially a blank, unused slate when the homeowners approached Kristian. A retired couple with grown children and a passion for gardening, they wanted an outdoor space with pergola shading and lush flower beds.

 
 

What started out as a sparse 10-by-10-foot concrete pad, a barren fence line and woods beyond turned into a little oasis thanks to a water fountain, custom pergola and expanded patio.

Kristian worked with the couple to customize their space, choosing an elite paver to veneer and expand the patio, a low-maintenance pergola, and plants that the wife requested especially to remind her of her home—crepe myrtles, persimmon and cypress.

“The trees create a transition from the natural woods beyond their yard, bringing the eye level down to a beautiful fence line.”

The garden beds feature low foundation shrubs, white azaleas and blue hydrangeas, but Kristian made sure to leave space for the wife to enjoy doing her own gardening, too.

I added little pockets of space for her to add her own touch, too. She loves gardening and now she has the space to do it, and enjoy.
