The client desired an exciting new entryway with an Asian flair. This bed pushes
the entry way out and forces an angled approach to the front door and
landing. The cedar bridge, washed aggregates, boulder slabs, and blue stone
surfaces blend nicely with the heavily wooded site. The arch of the bridge slows
you down and engages your attention toward the dry steam and rock garden
below. To solve the issue with a negative slope to their front door Yard Solutions
created a dry stream to collect the runoff water. Surface drains hidden in dry
steam are connected to the roof drains.
Residential Installation, Cat. II - $25,000 - $50,000

Yard Solutions was charged with turning a small area into a functional and
comfortable outdoor living space. They utilized natural materials that
transitioned from the patterned bluestone grilling area with limestone steps and
curbing to the gray brick path and patio. A limestone seatwall was installed
with an 8-foot tall cedar panel to partially screen the neighbors existing fence.
A cozy seating area is nuzzled around a fire feature made with limestone
curbing. The space was enhanced by utilizing a mix of existing mature plant
material with new plantings and a nice balance of hardscape and
greenscape in this small contemporary garden.
