Project Detail

The client is a senior who lives in the retirement community of Garth Trails in Hamilton. He had a basic “builder style” backyard with patio slabs that he wanted to make his own. With a plan from Envision Landscapes, his idea of a backyard with more privacy came into reality.

Envision excavated a lot of clay to create a solid base for the patio. Once the Permacon interlocking stone was installed over top of the gravel, the softscaping came next. The beds were planted, creating a maintenance free backyard of perennials and shrubs. When the beds were completed, two small fence panels were added to the sides of the fence. This allowed more privacy to his backyard than previously.

The backyard is now a fully planted yard that has matured and creates the serenity that was intended. Entertaining in the backyard is now a joy. There is room for people to enjoy the backyard without being cramped onto a small patio stone area.
