Total Backyard Renovation; Aesthetic and Function
We always do our best to blend function and aesthetic into all of our projects and this one was no exception. The dry stream bed is both beautiful and functional as it drains away water with a hidden french drain that once pooled terribly in the back yard. The stream flows seamlessly into the patio and connects the two main features of the space: the drystack wall, and the bluestone patio area (unfinished in these photos, fyi. The stones had not yet been chiseled down, hence some of the corners poking up).
