Backyard Retreat

A quick color conceptual of how things could possibly look in the new backyard. My perspective for this shot is taken right from the water's edge. A small retaining wall at seat height (double duty), screen planting, and a fire pit that ties itself into retaining wall. There is a suggestion of grasses in the right foreground. I like ornamental grasses and water-they really work together. The contrast plus the movement in the wind, a nice double duty for the plant material.
This is obviously a before of the site. A good time for me to come onto the project because absolutely no work has been done to the outside-a clean slate to work with. Lots of work to provide some sort of an expectation of privacy from the neighbors. Posted by Picasa
