Because this stately home is set along the North River, the landscape architects also installed stone steps that would allow their clients to walk right by the water. Shrubs and other plants line the path and offer additional natural texture.
The back of the house is just as lovely as the front, with more hedges and flowers decorating the yard's natural slope. Balconies in the distance encourage the owners to soak up cool breezes and views of this outdoor space at sunset.
Family Friendly Backyard With Two Level Deck and Playground
This family-friendly backyard includes entertainment for adults and kids alike. A playground with a small slide provides entertainment for the little ones, while a two-level deck creates enough space for outdoor dinner parties for adults.
Designer Matt Partridge of Juergen Partridge Limited installed multiple structures that provide shady, gathering spots on even the hottest days in this romantic backyard. To enhance the woodwork, he applied multiple stain colors to the cedar structure and decks. Designer Tip: When planning an outdoor space, think about your lifestyle and how you'll use it — whether as a recreational area for a young, active family or as a private, serene spot for relaxing and reading.
Garden beds are dispersed throughout the backyard to add a touch of fresh color and texture. In the small section featured here, a granite water feature doubles as an outdoor sculpture, encouraging quiet reflection among the flowers.
The back of this home is just as lovely as the front, thanks to a large pool, lush green lawn and thoughtful landscaping by Surrounds Landscape Architecture + Construction. Back here, the owners can swim a few laps or recline in chairs right by the water.
Not only do this patio's low walls act as room dividers, they're also just the right height to be used as extra seating when entertaining. A bluestone cap tops the fieldstone walls for a smooth, comfortable surface. Design by a Blade of Grass Landscape Design
