Ron and Eileen Frank want to make the most of the home they fell in love with, but their hectic schedules and lack of landscaping expertise have caused them to completely ignore their backyard.
They would like to integrate their home's interior with the yard, allowing for a smoother flow between indoor and outdoor areas.
They'd also like to add a spa and built-in barbecue while using attractive plant material to give them more privacy and to attract birds and butterflies.
Up to the challenge are the team of the design team Barbara Paul and Robin Abbott, landscape designer Krista Percival and landscape designer Amy Belt. Percival envisions a bird-friendly backyard with several natural focal points.
Finally, Barbara Paul and Robin Abbot present a design with a flagstone-trimmed patio, spa and barbecue. After one week of reviewing the three plans, the Franks select Percival's design.
The Franks' backyard has become a colorful, multi-functional retreat, perfect for large get-togethers or an intimate dinner for two. It is the perfect escape for these two busy professionals.
Native plants are combined with unique spirals and a new patio to match these creative homeowners' style.
