The clients of this home reached out to Birch River Design to help design a low water, low maintenance backyard with color year-round with seating areas and a water feature. The water feature helps to reduce neighborhood noise and is visited often by wildlife. The new landscape is viewed from the client’s main interior living area and required the two areas to flow naturally. The interior's color palette was repeated with orange & burgundy added for contrast. The new concrete pads are partially planted with a low growing groundcover to help break the repetition of the gravel and create added interest. Soft LED lighting was added for safety and entertainment.
