Merrimac, Massachusetts | These clients had just moved into their new home, and were looking to create a space where they could relax and entertain. When we first got to site, the side yard where this outdoor space is located was completely empty save for a few piles of stone the previous homeowner had left. The original plan was to give them a simple space to save on cost.
However, the homeowners wanted to see what else was possible within their budget. The designs included in the gallery below show the approved concept. This side of the house shouted for a cozy, enclosed garden area. With the space being shaded for 75% of the day a shade garden was the perfect solution. The homeowners also wanted to be able to have fires, so we created this custom firepit and circular patio to allow for entertaining and relaxing around the fire.
The end result was a beautiful, hidden away, shade garden filled with wildlife resistant, New England native plants. The paver walkways neatly connect the front and back yards, and firepit area allows for relaxation around the fire year round as it is directly connected off of the great room. The fieldstone wall envelopes around the entire space to retain the hill behind it, and give a very New England statement.
