The Tranquil Garden

The client had long dreamed of creating a tranquil garden in her backyard, one 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.

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.  The client’s backyard had standing water when the project started.   Couple this with the final design, which included over 1000sqft of hardscape surface being added to the backyard, made drainage extremely important to get right.

As part of the installation a complete landscape drainage system was installed.  French drains were added along the stairs, around the entire lawn perimeter and 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
