Backyard Bliss

Starting with a blank canvas, this suburban home’s backyard was transformed into a private retreat.

A blank canvas…

When these clients first got in touch with the Jansen Group, their backyard was essentially a blank slate — nothing but grass with little usable space. They wanted to extend their home outdoors and have a functional space outside where they could host their loved ones.

Beauty & utility in one.

The homeowners are avid gardeners and liked the idea of having a greenhouse on the property for propagation and potting. The back shed acts as a sitting area for morning coffees, a greenhouse and features a utility shed in the back.

From empty to expansive…

Today, this yard has transformed into a true retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. An expansive patio with two lounging areas, a natural gas firepit, gardens all around and pathways connecting them all — it’s a joy to behold.

Key Design Features

Nearly endless room to entertain.

A shed, greenhouse and reading area are all in one with the back structure, which has a front “porch” for morning coffees. Viewing the house from this angle adds a whole new perspective.

An expansive patio with sitting areas — one covered by a roof — loads of seating and a natural gas firepit make this property an entertainer’s dream.

Dining al fresco has never been easier with the decked-out outdoor kitchen and dining “room.”

A sense of flow is evident throughout the landscape, with pathways, stonework and curving lines that make it all feel natural.

Everything I dreamed about in our backyard… they made it happen.
