Elemental Back Patio & Landscape
- Project Type:Residential
- Location:Cary, NC
- Design Partner:Sears Design
When our client moved to a new home they were eager to have us come in and work our landscaping and construction magic. We were tasked with recreating the entire landscape, updating the driveway design, and adding a swimming pool, patio, and outdoor kitchen to the backyard. Our client asked for a formal style with a unique flair and beautiful craftsmanship. We partnered with Sears Design for the landscape design, and the Myatt team was responsible for the implementation and construction. Given the size and complexity of the project, it was important for our team to devise a highly detailed plan of action.
There was a sewer easement along the back property line, so the project involved ample inspections and approvals from the city and the HOA. In order to meet the engineering specifications, we hauled 65 truckloads of soil to build up the grade in the easement, also making sure to address water drainage and grade issues upfront.
Additionally, we filled in a ravine on the left side of the house in order to give the yard more lawn space, renovated the driveway in new concrete, and updated the motor court with a paver design. The backyard oasis we created includes custom brick walls, a swimming pool, back patio, fire bowls, copper spillways, and an outdoor kitchen.
We planted bold seasonal flower displays which pack a colorful and exotic feeling into the backyard pool area, motor court, and the front entry. Our regular maintenance keeps this corner lot property looking sharp and manicured from all directions. The property makes such a statement that many of our client’s surrounding neighbors are now Myatt Landscaping clients, too!
