You already saw part 1 of this project when we began to create a backyard paradise at this Williamsburg home, and now we're thrilled to show you the final results. This little slice of heaven is tucked away amidst already-beautiful landscaping, and our goal was to create a space where the homeowners could truly enjoy what was already growing right in their backyard.
The basic outline of the area was to add pavers with a stair landing, water feature, fire pit, and - of course - a small but beautiful water feature. The curved staircase leads down from the new landing straight to a grill, perfect for backyard cookouts. The fire pit, centered among the pavers, has some added features - a wood grain look and smokeless insert - that will make this space perfect for those outdoor summer evenings spent with friends.
And that's not all...
We never want to overlook how a backyard sounds in addition to how it looks, so the water feature, though small, is a central element. It's a medium stacked slate sphere surrounded by river rock, and the sound the water makes as it comes through the top of the fountain adds a truly peaceful dynamic to an already-beautiful space.
Close your eyes and envision this courtyard lit up at night with a small fire as friends and family gather around the pit to talk, with water bubbling through the silence to create the perfect hangout spot. That is what we created in this Williamsburg backyard.
