We are a young Southern California family who entertain our friends and family very regularly and would like to have our backyard designed. Our children play in the backyard daily and we have an excess of children in and out of our home regularly, more than the normal family with kids. We will also be homeschooling our children and would like our yard to be an extension of their education, hence the garden beds, chickens, fruit tress, etc..
The backyard is about 5700 sq ft with a 34ftx16ft pool that we will be keeping. We also have a small stretch of concrete between our home and the pool but plan to extend that out past the pool, horizontally following the side of the house which will then be covered with a pergola or shade.
Must have features:
- Garden beds/Aquaponics area
- Fruit Trees
- Chicken Coop
- Designated Kids Area (Not a Playset, see pictures for reference)
- Room for a Hot Tub
- Grassy Area
- Covered Patio
Bonus (Not Must haves):
- Designated Fire Pit Area
- Tortoise Habitat
- Deck attached to home or behind pool
- Small Pond or Water Feature in Yard
- Outdoor Kitchen/Countertop + Sink (minimalist)
Looking to spend $20,000 on all landscaping, construction and demo to redo the entire yard!
