The Brown Residence
Scope of Project:
We started with a blank slate on this newly built townhome at the base of the foothills. We utilized a Stone Forest water feature as a focal point for the patio, book ended by a pair of seat walls designed on a slight radius to contain the front of their sand finish concrete patio. The walls were veneered with tumbled San Miguel stone from Telluride and capped with Arizona Buff flagstone carefully chiseled to match the radius of the wall. Subtle landscape lighting is concealed under the wall caps.
To create privacy for their patio and to hide their air conditioner units, we fabricated and installed a system of Ipe and steel screens along the perimeter of the patio. A 13’ diameter Polaris patio umbrella by ShademakerUSA was installed to create ample shade for summer enjoyment of the patio.
To finish off the project and soften all the stonework, we brought in a specimen multi trunk Spring Snow crabapple and utilized Panchito Manzanita and Cranberry Cotoneaster as understory plantings. A lone Bartzella Itoh Peony was planted just off their deck to add a stunning splash of color, and a lush flare to the setting.
