west bend residence

The house was newly constructed on a steep sloping property that abutted an overgrown wooded edge.  Due to the sloped terrain we created a level area of lawn adjacent to the patios, and then dropped down to a lower plane to build an additional area on the edge of the yard for a fire pit.  A split rail fence serves the purpose of defining the borders of this outdoor living area and several varieties of Big Leaf Hosta, ferns and Coral Bells were planted to contrast with the fine textured woodland area beyond.  A steep dangerous sloping yard was made more accessible and easier to maintain with the combination of step and wall systems.
