Tiers of sloping fences, stone walls, and shaped rock formations border a platform seating area patterned with inlaid stonework housing a stonework fire pit and benches. Accent lighting beneath the benches reflect upon the stonework and complement the pit's flames. Outdoor seating adds added texture to the scene, and provides views of the topiary landscape.
Glass walls provide a look inside this lovely modern home and all the way through to the front yard. The ceiling extends outside to create a covered patio area with a concrete floor set in a natural rock bed. A cement outdoor fire pit is simple and functional.
Once completely unusable, this sloped backyard was transformed into an amazing space with outdoor dining, a large fire pit and a grilling area. The project required extensive grading, rock outcropping and drainage to create the ideal outdoor atmosphere. A variety of plants were used to make the space feel lively.
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)
A paver patio pathway leads to a stylish outdoor sitting space and continues down to a fire pit area with adirondack chairs. Beige cushions with a center tuft on the backrest pad the wrought iron chairs. A circular table with tinted glass top sits in the center topped with an oil lamp. Natural rock and plants surrounding the space add beautiful texture to the design.
