The client wanted to utilize her backyard after recently purchasing the home. Her previous lifestyle included an intense amount of gardening, overwhelming maintenance, and a ton of stress. She definitely wanted to retain her gardening hobby at her new home, but she wanted it to be a simple and elegant addition to her new relaxed lifestyle. In the backyard consisted of a poorly constructed deck off the back door. The client wished to extend the patio and have it transition into her landscape.
PCL created a custom design specified off of the client’s general ideas of how they would wish to spend their outdoor life at their new home. The back deck was the centerpiece of the transition from an interior life, to an outdoor backyard life. The deck initially entailed a deck that was built around a hot tub (Which the client loved). As we proceeded with the build, we changed the hot tub go right at the bottom of the stairs to the left sitting right in the landscape (minimizing maintenance). We tied the landscape into two tiers. One for grass, one for planting, and a concrete sidewalk between the deck and the bottom tier to create easy access.
All of the functions to this landscape complement one another, every angle of the landscape is just as beautiful in real life as the proposed design. The client said, “I was scared when you started excavating, it was a lot of dirt and the yard looked destroyed to no return. I just look out at what was created, and I couldn’t imagine anything different, it is simply perfect. You guys did a great job, your design was perfect, the changes we made along the way came out beyond better than I expected. I couldn’t be happier.”
The client had just purchased a home in the meadows community in Ferndale Washington after the home sat on the market for too long. They realized that the reason the home didn’t sell was because the landscape was bare and didn’t have a fence.
The client has a grandkid that they take care of often and wanted to have a space for the family to enjoy outside. They knew they wanted a concrete patio and fencing to be able to increase their outdoor living space and function ability of the home.
After consulting with the client at their home, our team had ongoing conversation with the client and communicated conceptual ideas and drawings. The proposal included 170’ of black hog panel custom fencing, a cobblestone bed alongside the sidewalk, a concrete patio surrounded by cobblestone, and another 6’ privacy fence around the patio to create a private oasis feeling.
The clients were so happy with the work they have been overwhelmed with compliments from the neighbors.
The client was looking to increase his outdoor living space and make better utilization of his pathways. In addition, he wanted to create a personalized “oasis” in between his two garages. Easy maintenance of everything was also a top priority.
After meeting with the client we discussed his needs, PCL developed a plan centered around installing flat pavers and a fence.
Using pavers made from only the best-quality materials in order to last for years and resist erosion and cracking, PCL got to work on the first part of the project. The flat surfaces of the pavers, along with our care to make sure they aligned evenly, ensured safety and ease of use.
After finishing the installation of the pavers, PCL constructed a fence for the oasis. This provided the client two distinct benefits: privacy and a sense of enclosure and intimacy.
The client couldn’t have been happier. Now he has a custom-tailored outdoor space for reading books and relaxing. Additionally, it’s a place where he can meditate and generate good ideas. And PCL delivered another successful project for a Whatcom County client!
