We created several zones that in their back yard including a large outdoor kitchen and entertaining area, a fire pit area that would take advantage of views, and portable spa area.
The outdoor kitchen area features a custom stone BBQ island with granite counter that also acts as a retaining wall for the slope beyond. The custom wood arbor defines the larger entertaining area. Outdoor lighting is located in the arbor so the home owners can entertain in the evenings.
The built-in gas fire pit is a nice area to pull up a chair and relax on cool evenings. Natural drystack stone retaining walls are utilized to provide texture and interest in the hillside planting areas.
