A client of BLG Environmental Services employed our home landscape design team for a backyard redesign project in Lake Mary Florida. The client had a small backyard and was in need of creating a unique outdoor space. They desired backyard design ideas to create a rustic back drop for family gatherings. A playground area was also needed for their 3 young children.
Our Lake Mary, FL landscape designer and team started by removing the old landscape. BLG’s landscape design team then divided the backyard design into 3 distinct areas including a stone waterfall & landscape, green space, and a playground. Large boulders were then installed to raise the flowerbed and a custom stone waterfall was constructed to provide a stunning focal point from all angles. This also provided a calming sound that could be heard in the house when the back doors were open on cool days. Rustic plantings were added including holly trees, junipers, ornamental grasses, and a dash of seasonal color.
Our team then incorporated a green space for play days. This included new sod and irrigation to keep things looking great. The rest of the backyard design was completed with the addition of a good size playground space. This was comprised of playground cypress chips, swing set with a 2-story cedar fort, and a super-fast slide.
Finally, our Lake Mary Florida landscape designer strategically placed LED landscape lighting throughout the backyard design. This included highlighting the waterfall and trees for an incredible view from inside the house. This created an extension of the home into the backyard at night. Lighting was also added into the playground fort so the kids could play day and night.
