Front & Back Yard Masterpiece

This front & backyard landscaping project in Lake Forest includes a bluestone patio, retaining wall around a walkout basement & water feature.

Front Yard Landscape & Hardscaping

We started with the front of the home.  First, our team created a new stone paver driveway which leads to an elegant front entrance.  To increase year-round interest,  we lined the bluestone walkway with perennials and annuals.

To the side of the entrance, the homeowners requested a lovely sitting area. We built a medium sized patio and topped it off with a custom built cedar pergola.

The backyard design includes an intricate bluestone patio and retaining wall that leads from the walkout basement sliding doors. A circular stone staircase leads up to the lawn and patio, which includes a stair-step pathway. Along the lake, perennial plantings were installed as well as a large water feature.
