The homeowners of an unused backyard want a shaded patio, a built-in barbecue, a play area for the kids — all within a design that maximizes their spectacular view.

Wendy and Eric choose Kimo Rusing to transform their yard. The backyard is now their own private resort, complete with a combination barbecue-water feature, center-stage putting green and an above-ground spa that takes in the gorgeous view. A pergola on the back side of the house provides light shade without making the home's interior too dark. The unused corner at the rear of the yard holds their attractive new spa and takes advantage of the gorgeous view. Colorful plants like azaleas and mandevilla border a new path leading to the front yard.
