Coastal living with a newly converted front yard into a private patio for the home owners. Previously the front yard was overgrown with shrubs and a tired lawn. As the back yard is very limited in space the front yard was transformed into a usable space. The 560 sq ft front yard became a very private livable outdoor room to relax, cook and entertain with a wonderful coastal vibe.
The long wide driveway was also repurposed with a gate to create an enclosed side court yard as a relaxing retreat right out of the front door. Auto parking remained in front of the gate separating the once single space into two unique spaces.
- Design a private and intimate outdoor living space in the front yard providing solutions for privacy from the public side walk. Create a brick exterior wall with matching brick color to the existing house. Within the new front patio area include a fountain, dining table, benches, fire pit and a barbecue area for a complete area of relaxation and entertainment.
- Design a gate separation on a broad driveway creating a private court yard for a fountain and additional planting areas facing the main entrance to the residence.
- Include plant materials that will attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
