North Wood-Inspired Backyard

Designer Eric Van Thomme turns the homeowners small yard into a North Woods paradise by installing a boulder retaining wall, boulder seating, birdbath, and a canoe shaped patio.

  • While the homeowners love the look of the backyard, they don't have anywhere to relax or entertain.
  • The Landscape Smart team levels out the slope and builds a boulder retaining wall into the hillside.
  • This outdoor-loving couple likes seeing their woodsy hillside, but need a better space for hanging out. In addition, they have some handicapped family members, so the space needs to be more accessible.
  • To take advantage of every inch of the narrow space, they build a canoe-shaped patio and add a flag-stone walkway.
