Backyard Landscape Transformation

Backyard Landscape Transformation

A backyard landscape makeover starts with a property owner that has lots of local rock. The owner of a Shenandoah Valley farmhouse in Virginia wanted to update landscape elements on his property. Luckily, his neighbor happened to have lots of local lime stone from a dilapidated ice house. Here you can see the pile of salvaged stones waiting to be re-purposed, and part of the yard that will get a total make-over.

First, we used some of the stones as the base for a new deck off the back of the house.

Then, we built retaining walls and, to add interest, created different levels in the yard:

What to do with the leftover stone? THE POOL! We replaced the hum-drum wooden fence with this blended stone-and-iron fence design. Practical and Beautiful! The ironwork makes this fence safe and up-to-code, while the uneven design of the stone wall reflects the natural rolling look of the surrounding mountains.

Plant and stone elements work together!

As the sun comes up over the mountains, the stones light up.
