Our clients had decorated the inside of their Fox Point, WI home in a modern style so they asked us to create a landscape design that also had that flavor. For the front yard our goal was to downplay the driveway across the front of the house. The new concrete front walk directs visitors to the front door and creates an area for passengers to exit their vehicles easily off the driveway. A bluestone pad off the front walk is meant for a future bench.
The design also included the backyard where the existing patio space was too small for entertaining, so we designed a new expanded concrete patio with room for grilling, dining and lounging. The bluestone dining area has a custom cedar pergola overhead with built-in downlighting. For phase 1, our clients chose to not include the fire pit area we had designed. Beach pebble runnels help to visually separate the outdoor rooms of the patio and slate chip in some of the plant beds adds a Zen aspect to the design.
Landscape lighting was designed for the entire project as shown in the evening photos. We also designed the stone and cedar address marker at the end of the driveway.
