Major Yard Renovation in Glastonbury

This back yard retreat was the result of many months of planning and many landscape design ideas and revisions.  As you will see, the end result was quite a transformation!  This was a landscape that was about 25 years old and was not planned or installed very well.  We found many issues with the previous installation and parts of it were falling apart.  I discussed with the client how to reimagine the existing spaces that we wanted to keep, and how to refocus the space toward a new pool area.  We also updated the deck with new planking, railings, and a new staircase.

The first thing to do was remove the old landscape and get back to a clean slate.  Because the old landscape was so large and overgrown it was hard for the client to visualize what the new possibilities were.  This led to a few changes along the way with this build.  Many of the changes revolved around ensuring the flow of the project worked well for the new spaces.

After the new boulder walls were complete, we modified the existing mortared stone walls to reflect the new design.  We were able to reuse much of the old stone material to build the new walls and steps.  We then constructed the new patios and walkways.  Many details were added into the spaces including: a fire pit, sitting rocks, four staircases, and steps to a new hot tub.

"We didn't want to let too much time pass before writing to you. We are so pleased with the patio and have already used it many times in the past few weeks. We always had a nice retreat in the woods - but now we are actually USING the space to read, cook and relax. Your team was a pleasure to work with on the project. Dave kept everything moving and we felt very well informed throughout the build. He went above and beyond to make sure that our property was well cared for and that the patio ultimately fit our vision. Jimmy was the other key component to the team. He is an extremely hard worker that was very dedicated to the project and easily served as our onsite contact when Dave was unavailable. We cannot compliment either of them enough! From the beginning, we have loved your vision for this project and we hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you for creating our new backyard oasis! It's perfect." Read more comments
