dhillon, maple ridge, bc
An “outdoor room with a view” is the best way to describe this designed backyard. What this family now enjoys is a gathering space for family and friends. Most often their backdoor is left open, and movement from inside and outside is natural and fluid. A composite deck material provides a clean low care surface for an entertaining space around the outdoor fireplace. The area is bordered by a raised planter that brings garden in close proximity. Within this planter is the soothing sight and sound of a basalt stone column water gurgler -complete with evening lighting for setting the right mood. The deck continues to expand into dining and bbq areas, with an attractive cedar screen to provide discreet privacy. The view from this entertainment area is provided with seasonal plant display amongst dry stacked stone wall planter.
