Roswell Backyard Renewal
May 5, 2017

« Back to Projects

This enhancement in Roswell has really changed the entire look and functionality of the backyard. It went from your basic sod and shrub backyard to a show place.

Backyard Landscape 

Backyard Landscape Construction 

We added a custom waterfall that breaks up the large retaining wall in the back. This provides both visual and auditory enjoyment and it is centered off the back bay window so it can be enjoyed from inside the house as well. There is also a small river that runs through the yard.

In addition to that we built a patio with a sunken fire pit and a seat wall. The fire pit is below ground and we used fire glass inside of it so now when it is lit, the flames seem to appear out of nowhere.

We accented it all with landscape lighting included in the water fall and the river to highlight the water at night.

We also added some path lights which adds to the overall ambiance and enjoyment of the landscape.

Personal Touch Tips:

Get fall pre-emergent down before temperatures get too cool. You want a barrier of protection from fall/winter weeds before they start to germinate. If you plan on aerating and seeding, then do not apply a pre-emergent first as this will inhibit the growth of grass seed.
