hall residence, maple ridge, bc

The completed landscape for this large acreage property successfully strikes the balance between intimacy and vista. Outside the backdoor is a cobblestone patio with the convenience of a nearby outdoor kitchen and the warmth of a gas fireplace. A landscaped water feature pulls the eye further into the property. Stone paths, stairs, and curving stone walls continue to utilize the whole space. Newly planted trees create a grove in the foreground of the distant greenbelt. Here one can retreat to the outdoor kitchen counter, chat with the bbq cook, and overlook the water falls.
