Modern Makeover

By Chalet

While this Glenview home underwent a complete renovation, the clients wanted a refreshed landscape with a modern touch. The goal was to create a modern space used by the family for play and relaxation, yet sophisticated enough to host adult gatherings. The design focused on functional spaces that look great from inside or outside the home. A custom concrete paver was laid in a grid pattern with limestone chip joints to create the main patio. A separate patio was designed using a permeable base topped with limestone chip to not disrupt the large Locust tree nearby. A board form concrete fire pit was designed and poured in place to act as the center piece of the secondary patio. The planting scheme was kept simple to allow for low maintenance for the busy family. The updated landscape provides a simple, yet sophisticated space that compliments the updated style of the home.
