Natural Stone Steps at Dusk
Natural stone steps can be a way to call attention to your landscape or to allow it to nestle into the backdrop of a more naturalistic style. They also emphasize the journey, causing visitors to slow down and take their time while exploring this peaceful backyard.
John Colaneri, and Anthony Carrino from HGTV's "Cousins on Call", have built a nursery for the Park family, as well as redesigning the landscape in the backyard of their home. The Park family owns a flower shop, but have never had a place at home to grow and plant their own flowers.
This stunning contemporary home has a neutral exterior with an abundance of windows that showcase a grand spiral staircase, chic living room and other indoor spaces. A narrow backyard water feature showcases black stone accents, while a covered porch area provides the ideal outdoor space for relaxing.
Concrete Steps Provide Access to Backyard's Upper Tier
Concrete steps create a break in the stone retaining wall that separates the upper and lower backyard tiers. These steps provide access to the upper tier, creating an organized flow in the backyard, and frame the waterfall that adds a peaceful ambiance to the space.
With stacks of firewood, two lounge chairs and a couple of lanterns, this corner of the backyard is positively enchanting. An industrial-style fence prevents the kiddos from wandering out of sight as well.
The backyard pool has its own poolhouse and spacious patio. The patio is meant for smaller gatherings and includes a fireplace and a tv. The poolhouse keeps guests and residents comfortable with a shower and bathroom.
English Country Stone Pathway With Purple Hydrangea
In the distance, the Kousa Dogwood acts as a focal point to pull the eye through the front pathway along with the low Liriope in the foreground. Designer tip: Soft textures and colors, like in these hydrangeas, evoke a feeling of being able to wander and get lost in relaxation.
Rear Terrace: Historic Tall Oaks in Bernardsville Boro, NJ
The home's rear terrace offers a front row view of the New York City skyline. Adjoining the estate, the 276-acre Sherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary provides Tall Oaks a privileged measure of privacy and seclusion.
