Outdoor living spaces don’t always quite fit homeowners’ needs and lifestyles and yards aren’t always as private as homeowners wish—this was the case for Suzi and Bob MacDaniels in Potomac, Maryland. So they called Four Seasons for landscaping to help transform their yard!
The Four Seasons team built an outdoor kitchen with granite countertops and a stainless steel grill with two gas burners to the right (we hooked it up directly to the gas line so there was no need for a propane tank). Underneath the grill is cabinetry for storage and to the left is a tub that can be filled with ice and used to chill drinks. We designed the outdoor kitchen to work well with the deck (raised three steps) and is right near the back door and their kitchen inside the house, for easy access and traffic flow when they are entertaining.
Additional hardscapes we installed include a flagstone walkway from the side yard to the back deck and a fire pit that is built into the stone decorative wall on the patio. Our team also installed landscape lighting in planter beds, under trees, and along the walkway.
Because the MacDaniels wanted their yard to be more private, we installed eight green arborvitae trees by the fence—along with cherry laurels and additional plants and rocks.
“The guys were great…we couldn’t have been happier,” Suzi said. “We are thrilled with our backyard now.”
