Outdated Backyard Updated Into Seasonal Entertainment Area

Desiring and updated, modern backyard retreat, homeowners in Ridgewood turned to Joe Tuttle, of Borst Landscape and Design, to set about updating their existing patio into the entertaining area they envisioned.

After a number of years, the owners of this lovely Tudor style home decided it was time for a backyard update.

Included in their vision of the rear yard was a pool house with a flat panel TV and fireplace to take the chill off those cool summer and early fall evenings by the pool and an outdoor kitchen designed for preparing a complete meal or a late snack.

As well, the existing pool patio needed a makeover, eliminating the solid pavement surrounding the pool for lawn on two sides and large bluestone squares on which to place lounge chairs.

The backyard now functions to provide not only a setting for entertaining by poolside but extends the usefulness of the area into the fall.


Make your dream landscape a reality.
