Formal Backyard With Secret Garden

This client had long dreamed of creating a classic tranquil garden in her backyard where the family could have a spiritual retreat for reflection and transformation. The dream was over 20 years old and the search for a design/build company was entering its third year, and then Dennis’ 7 Dees came through to finally make her dream a reality.

Physical conditions creating construction challenges included the property being the low spot on a slope in a neighborhood of 20+ homes. While there was street drainage to aid in capturing the water runoff, the property drainage from home to home was non-existent. Therefore, the client’s backyard had standing water when the project started.

The final landscape design included over 1000 square feet of hardscape surface in the backyard along with a complete drainage system. French drains were added along the stairs, around the entire lawn perimeter, and along the edges of all the hardscape paths. These drains channeled the water into two manufactured dry well systems. Drainage systems were also installed behind the rock sitting wall and directed toward another dry well installed down the slope. Along with no more drainage disasters to worry about, the client finally had her long overdue dream garden.
