Enclosed Backyard With Above-Ground Hot Tub & Fire Wall
The client’s wish list packed a lot into a 15' x 32' enclosed backyard: a dining area, firepit, grill, six-person spa, seating area and outdoor shower. The solution executed by Jeff Troyer Associates was an exotic hardwood deck and fire wall with a mini outdoor kitchen separating the deck from the hot tub.
A huge luxury firepit sets the stage for this outdoor entertainment area. Comfy seating surrounds the fire pit for guests who want to stay warm, while seating beneath the covered porch provides a spot to sit in the shade or simply enjoy the view.
This patio was made for entertaining! A large built-in granite table sits 12 people just steps from a large commercial outdoor kitchen. The recessed seating area around the firepit also seats 12 while the infinity edge pool and spa looks out onto the lake.
Centered in the backyard is a relaxing pool, anchored by a reclaimed brick-clad spa. A copper-screened cabana house includes an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and temperature controls for year-round comfort. Under the vine-covered pergola is an outdoor firepit and seating area, perfect for nighttime gatherings.
This rocky, hillside back yard was transformed by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew. Upgrades included tiered landscaping, a covered dining area and an intimate sitting area next to a washtub firepit.
After the backyard makeover at DIY Networkâ€™s Yard Crashers, homeowners Brooke and Zach Taylor of Auburn, CA now have a lush and vibrant backyard for their entire family to enjoy- a stark contrast from the rocky hillside that took up much of their yard before! The transformation by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew includes a metal and wood pergola, hillside creek water feature, privacy screen with wood and metal, a Big Green Egg smoker and custom cart, and a firepit with seating. The fire pit sits on a raised platform with a rock wall boder. Two washtubs filled with rock form the fire pit itself which sets on a bed of decomposed granite. The pit is surrounded by custom metal privacy screens. (after)(detail)
