• Incorporating a screened in gazebo to enjoy evening entertaining in a bug free environment was important
  • Provide a strong visual connected from the house to the gazebo to the ravine area
  • To make the backyard more inviting and usable for family and friends

Key Features:

  • Gazebo became the focal point of the design and its positioning was critical
  • We positioned it about 1/3 of the way down the slope this allowed us to provide an inviting entrance to the gazebo
  • The existing weeping willow and forest area provide a beautiful back drop
  • Inside the gazebo offers a great view of the pond and fire pit area as well as the meandering steps
  • We connected the ravine with the property by providing steps leading to an arbor at the edge of the property line. The arbor houses a mirror positioned on a specific angle to give the illusion that the walkway continues but in fact it ends at the property line. This gives the feeling that the property continues beyond its borders into another area
