RICE'S LANDSCAPES REDEFINED
https://www.riceslandscapes.com/
The client wanted a patio area using natural materials that included the
planting of natives, edibles, herbs and lots of summer color. They revealed that
they would be adding a chicken coop and utility building just beyond the
patio, so Rice’s incorporated an arbor to help screen the view. Top rock is
postioned as seating and up and down lights will illuminate the area.
The
bluestone patio works well with the stained cedar arbor and top rock. The
plantings included lots of colorful perennials and natives.

AMERICAN BEAUTY LANDSCAPING

This project was the last phase of a 5-year endeavor. In this phase, the owner
wanted an outdoor kitchen with prep area and a small fountain to provide
privacy and sounds of trickling water as well as space for dining and
entertaining.
With a vertical drop of 42 inches, steps were built in an esthetically
pleasing way. The grill area is located just below the main terrace; a low seat
wall separates its floor from the counter and becomes a back splash for the
cooking area. The water feature is constructed of masonry block with faux stone
and is capped with rose sandstone.  An artistic copper design directs the
streams of water.

AMERICAN BEAUTY LANDSCAPING

This landscape was created in two phases- one including the backyard and
the front yard in the other. A new wider front walkway terminates in a receiving
area adjacent to the driveway.  The circular landing and banding repeat the
windows brickwork.  The unique middle landing helps to visually project the
recessed front door towards the road and continues the circular theme. In
back, the circular theme continues with the seating wall circle, while the
banding defines the fire pit space. An open floor plan creates a spacious resort-
like feeling just steps from the kitchen.
