With a door that was elevated higher than the normal rear entry door, our design team needed to be creative. With a large amount of the foundation brick being exposed as well, screening needed to be provided, but in a discreet fashion. Creating garden boxes that would be taller in height and tie into the steps provided the solution. Adding planting material between the house and the patio created a natural element, which also muted the harshness of the exposed foundation. With a lovely pond at the rear of the property, the homeowners can now relax on the patio and simply enjoy the view!
