Krista and Grant have the classic backyard with the driveway down the side and a large garage as the focal point in their backyard.
On a positive note, they have a very large space measuring 196’ x 43’which their children have happily taken advantage of for years.
Now the kids have outgrown their outdoor activities and its time for mom and dad to make the yard meet their needs.
The challenge when parents leave the backyard to the kids is in understanding how to use it once the children have moved on.
The backyard hasn’t been an area for the adults up until this point. It’s almost like discovering another room in a house that you didn’t know you had and trying to decide how to best use it.
Krista and Grant want to link the garage to the newly built deck with stairs and better accessibility. They want to create a space for entertaining and incorporate plants and vegetables to make the area feel more welcoming.
