This was a complete renovation of this backyard. We created a landscape plan first. Then we went through and completely tore out everything in her backyard (pool stayed). We even removed her deck. Next stage is to grade and level everything back out. We installed new drainage solutions as well. We then installed a new deck and even changed the location of her stairs! We installed a new patio under her new deck and spilled out into other parts of her yard. We created a new stair way with planters and pavers from the new patio to the pool deck. We installed several new pathways as well. We installed new plants, and new sod to complete the backyard.
