The backyard design for the Villanueva’s successfully created a complete outdoor living space to complement the beautiful architecture of the home. While the home already had some amenities for their backyard including an outdoor kitchen and pool, they still desired to have additional space to host friends and family. The large patio extension and robust cedar arbor additions create a true outdoor living and entertainment space. The addition of café lights and a motorized screen make the backyard the place to be at any given time.
The firepit area is adjacent to the extended outdoor living space. The matching stone masonry seatwall adds ample seating for the family and guests to relax and enjoy sitting by the fire. The flagstone with dwarf mondo grass joints frames the firepit area and emphasizes this cozy destination within the backyard.
The seatwall continues along the side of the yard and terminates at the column with an umbrella sleeve. This creates a space for parents to watch their kids play in the grass and have the option to enjoy sun or shade.
A quiet space is located on the other side of the backyard. Here, lounging chairs are set up on flagstone and framed by the landscape. Users are able to enjoy the sunshine and views of the community’s formal garden.
