Residential Family Yard

This Contemporary Landscape Design by Landcare provides a family many spaces for a happy life together. Large windows in this modern home look out onto a clean design that includes an entertaining area, outdoor kitchen, and a grassy sports area. A mature treed property gives the depth and privacy along with new fencing and the sports area is outlined by tidy mulched garden beds. The crisp definition echos the contemporary style while the soft round shapes contrast the lines of the patio. Gravel pathways are a soft contrast that suits the forest feel, while a raised patio keeps loose rocks out of the dining area and provides a modern contrast. The shade along with active kids makes grass in the rear yard vulnerable, so this family decided to install realistic artificial turf instead. Visitors cannot tell the difference, but the low maintenance is a definite giveaway. The homeowners have invested in outdoor patio heaters to extend the use of their dining area and lounge.

The front of the house boasts an expansive driveway able to support many cars and a game of pick up basketball.
