Designer Eric Baldus designs a yard that blends family history and artistic form.
Landscape architect Kevin and designer Marnie Teppen ideally should have some idea about how to landscape their plain yard. Yet they're paralyzed by too many options. So they have called upon designer Eric Baldus to help them out with the lay of the land. With a wealth of rock at his fingertips, Baldus creates a design that blends family history with artistic form and function.
The new area features plenty of room for their son to romp and a spacious brick patio suitable for entertaining.
A circular sandbox serves as a fun playspace for the homeowners' child.
There is no definition or interest to the side yard. It needs to serve as a transition from the front to the backyard.
New plantings, a brick path and a trellis planted with vines add color and interest to the space.
Once an unused area, this new water feature incorporates rock collected from Kevin's family farm.
Custom modern furniture provides seating with character, and a fire pit makes a great accent to complete this space.
