It's a Jungle Out ThereKarie and Rob Jett are ready to conquer their untamed backyard. They've been living in their 1934 cottage-style home for five years, but haven't touched the yard yet. Karie would like a secret space for the twins, as well as a more useable outdoor space.
Sky Blue Kids' CottageLandscape designer Matt Akabane creates a kid-friendly backyard, which is rounded out by a stunning flagstone patio. The custom cottage-style playhouse reflects the look of the Jetts' home and is the perfect place for the twins to play. A redwood play structure nearby is great for climbing and the new lawn makes playing out in the yard a lot safer.
Dangerous ConcreteThe Jetts' jungle of a backyard is overgrown with weeds and covered in concrete. There's a lot of wasted space, but they think that the space has a lot of potential. Most important is a space where kids can play outside safely and where they can entertain family and friends.
Perfectly Placed FlagstoneA white archway leads into the new flagstone patio and spices up the decomposed granite pathway. Redwood tree stumps add a rustic vibe and some cool seating to the yard. The transformation has created a lot more room for the family to hang out and is much more pleasant to look at. Colorful flowers complete the new landscape.
