Lower-level garden beds are part of the limestone retaining wall that separates the patio from the lawn. The look along the wall continues to be dynamic with the waterfall runoff from the infinity pool.
A stone retaining wall surrounds the backyard and swimming pool of this home adding a beautiful texture contrast against the lush green grass. Planted shrubbery creates a decorative topper to the wall and helps blend it with the natural surroundings.
Looking at it now, it's hard to believe that the backyard once sloped straight down the hill. After careful planning by the landscape architects, locally cut stone retaining walls were added to level off the deck and recapture all of this useable space.
Thick stone retaining walls define the backyard, as well as complement the home's contemporary architecture. A sitting area tucked against the far side of the space allows the owners and their friends to catch up while their kiddos play on the grass.
