Case Study


Farmington Hills Residence

Completed: 2017 Location: Farmington Hills, MI Project Type: Residential

Originally called in to design and install a patio, the project expanded during the design process to include a swimming pool and cabana. The client wanted a more modern feel to the back yard, and wanted to be able to eat dinner as a family on the new patio as well as using the entirety of the renovated outdoor space (including the new pool area) to entertain guests.

Highlights Include:
  • Lush landscape filled with columnar oaks, evergreen hedges, hydrangeas, and various ornamental grasses and perennials
  • LED landscape lighting throughout
  • Angled swimming pool sits parallel to the rear property line
  • New lawn space/play area for the children
  • Cedar Cabana with contemporary custom-built fireplace, wood storage, and heat lamps
  • Contemporary hardscape accomplished using Unilock Artline, Unilock Bristol Valley, and travertine pavers
