Backyard Landscape Design that Works with Constraints

Avid golfers are bound to appreciate the perks of living in a golf course community. Yet, there are also plenty of other benefits to this lifestyle. Not only is the property well-maintained and secure, but residents can enjoy beautiful views from the comfort of their home and remain confident in the resale value.

On the other hand, some constraints come with this lifestyle. Typically bound by strict real estate agreements, homes in golf course communities may be limited in terms of construction — especially backyard landscape design.

At Green Impressions, we enjoy the challenge of working around these constraints and helping Northeast Ohio homeowners bring their dream landscape to life. Here’s one project where we did just that.

A Backyard Landscape Design on a Golf Course

As with every backyard landscape design, our process began with an on-site visit to the home. During this time, we assessed the challenges of the property, as well as the homeowner’s goals. The overarching goal was to create a space to socialize with family and friends.

It all started with the design of the patio space. For this, we used Unilock’s Rivenstone™ pavers in Canyon. This style of paver is recognized for its ability to blend the durability of concrete with the flexibility and character of natural stone.

When guests follow the walkway to the backyard, they are greeted by a spa enclosed with a ledgestone-cultured veneer material. Custom carved using natural sandstone, a waterfall rock spills into the hot tub, making it a water feature when it is not being used for recreational purposes.

Set further back in the landscape is a cedar pergola that maximizes the functionality and privacy of the backyard landscape design. A wood-burning fireplace, high-top bar area and television turn this area into an outdoor living room, with decor like a deer antler chandelier that adds a rustic feel to the space.

Further amenities include a grill station with granite countertops and an AOG grill, as well as Vista LED landscape lighting to keep the outdoor space safe and secure.
