Zen Retreat

Girish and Vashalee Ballolla built their suburban home 5 years ago and couldn't be happier with the space. Although the front of the house has plenty of curb appeal - the back is definitely an empty slate. Last year Girish built a very nice deck, but it leads to a bland backyard and the empty space looks ignored and deserted. Since Vaishalee is a yoga instructor, she'd like to build a Zen retreat in the backyard, complete with a water feature, gazebo, slate tile under the deck and lush landscaping. They think that their neighborhood can support their grand backyard plan and if designed properly and executed well they can see 100 percent return on investment.
