Dark to Delightful

Landscape Ontario Award of Excellence 2017

This project began with the clients’ desire to maximize their outdoor space.

The old two car garage was converted to a new kids’ play room, complete with heated floors and drywall on the interior walls. A flat roof was installed to provide an upper sunning area and yields an additional 400 square feet of outdoor living space. The structure was given a heritage stone façade, a classic overshot roof, along with custom doors and sidelights. Reclaimed antique masks were incorporated into a brick and stone water feature. Additional elements include a stunning bit of drystone walling, stairs leading to a kids’ swing, flagstone and herringbone brick as the pedestrian surfaces, a built-in stone barbeque and a heated driveway. Spectacular gardens and lighting round out the project.
