Hideaway haven

 A small outdoor living space transformed into an elaborate, relaxing oasis.

Create a colorful garden hideway

An abundance of plants fill up space around the staircase and patio to create a private haven for these homeowners. With a wide range of tall greenery, pops of color and hearty annuals this backyard hideaway is gardener’s dream.

Gather around a stunning outdoor fireplace

The focal point of this design is the custom-made fireplace and built-in seating bench both of which were constructed onsite using white limestone specially ordered from Texas. The stark white provides dramatic contrast to the patio and pergola. The 42-inch firebox allows homeowners to easily keep the space comfortable on chilly evenings.

A stunning grand staircase leads the way

Working with the natural sharp 7-foot drop in the backyard we designed an elegant 30-foot-long natural stone staircase that meanders down to the lower level patio. Large intermediate landings soften the impact of the otherwise steep, rigid staircase and stone cut treads on the steps provide safety after dark.

Retaining walls

To hold up the hillside, retaining walls were built into the staircase, adding dramatic effect to the landscape architecture.

A plethora of plants

Varieties including phlox, thyme, sedum, astilbe, echinacea, hydrangeas, and scotch moss were added to surround the patio and create privacy.

Designed for safety

More than 40 different accent and decorative spotlights were installed to improve safety and security around this magnificent home.

"We interviewed numerous landscape design firms, but ultimately chose Landscapes by Terra because they were the only ones who clearly understood our vision, were willing and able to deliver on custom and unique features, and executed a final product that far exceeded what we thought was possible.

Collin’s communication, collaboration and design ideas helped create a backyard oasis that fits our house. We love the variety of different natural stones integrated with plant material which made the entire space – landing, stairs, patio, pergola, fireplace – cohesive and balanced. The quality of work and execution of our vision was incredible – and a testament to the quality of crews, and open communication from on-site crews to landscape design to us as clients. Any issues were raised quickly and accompanied by recommendations and potential solutions.

We had very high expectations, and Collin / Landscapes by Terra somehow exceeded them. We would recommend them to anyone interested in a landscaping project – but particularly those looking for custom features, thoughtful design and high-quality execution."
