Recently a BLG Environmental Services client was in need of garden design in Orlando Florida for a backyard makeover. They contracted us to transform their small backyard and to create a calming and inviting outdoor space. The client desired elegant finishes to draw the eye and create depth in their small backyard. This garden design Orlando FL project included an 8ft cut stone fireplace, peaceful sitting area, and a lush landscape for entertaining.
The backyard makeover started with the BLG team creating a patio with rustic brick pavers. A warm stone fire-place was then installed including a seating wall and decorative columns. Natural gas logs & burner were used to provide instant warmth for family gatherings. This also created a stunning focal point when sitting in the family room looking out.
The Orlando FL garden design project continued with creation of a hidden away sitting area. Brown river rock with blueridge flagstone stepping stones created a fun pathway to draw guests & family to a sitting area. Colorful glazed pottery pleased the eye with a fragrant tea olive finishing the experience.
The backyard makeover finished with installation of large palms & trees to provide a sense of privacy, removing the feeling of being in a box. Gardenias, bougainvillea, and assorted perennials were used for constant color throughout the year. Strategically placed LED landscape lighting was included on this garden design Orlando project. Up lighting on the trees & cut stone fireplace provided ambient light to draw the eye at night. Brass downlights guided guests to sitting areas and completed this rich backyard makeover.
