Hinsdale Hideaway

By Premier Landscape Contractors, Inc.

The art of working within the confines of a given space is about finding opportunities, then maximizing their potential. This Hinsdale home features a sprawling front yard and offers a semi-circle permeable clay paver driveway with abundant softscape features to soften the look of the home. Hidden behind a stately garden on the south side of the home is an unexpected—and completely private—backyard summer getaway, complete with pool, hot tub, and numerous lounging and seating areas. With a graciously sized Valder’s buff limestone pool deck, the pool and hot tub area sits in its own defined space visible only in part from the home’s back patio, which features a sleek outdoor kitchen. The manipulation of the space with carefully designed hardscape and softscape features gives containment to each area without interrupting the flow of the overall design. Whether guests choose to lounge in the main patio, the adjacent firepit seating area on the lawn, or the pool deck, their experience of the space is both completely sequestered from the public-facing sides of the home and inviting of exploration within the space itself.
