Suburban Retreat

A relaxing getaway right in the back yard. This beautiful project is located in the suburbs of Zionsville, Indiana.

Suburban Retreat

Before and After

“I had a vision and Aspen Outdoor Designs was able to deliver on my vision to a T.  The design process went smoothly and they were very descriptive in the plants I was going to receive, what the decking was going to look like and all of the other materials required for the project.

The on-site construction team was also extremely courteous, not only to my family and myself, but to my neighbors as well. Backyard projects are a huge undertaking and can be extremely expensive, but with Aspen you can rest assured you get what you pay for!”

The Process

For this project, the homeowners wanted to add a composite deck with a roofed structure for additional living space where they could grill and entertain. Creating harmony with the existing architecture of the house was a primary concern. With the placement of the existing windows, a simple shed style roof was the best option.  This gives the space a cozy feel while protecting the owners from the elements.

Beyond the Structure

Beyond the structure the owners also wanted a separate fire-pit sitting area. This was achieved with the addition of a circular gas burning fire-pit matched with a paver patio. To resolve the existing grade of the backyard natural stone boulders were added, transitioning nicely into a meandering water feature. With the finishing touches of landscaping and lighting this project truly is a “Suburban Retreat”.
