Ready to Design Your Own Glenview, Illinois Landscape?
With the exception of a small patio and freestanding grill, most of this home's expansive backyard was dedicated to a large lawn. Uninspiring in winter and requiring extensive time and effort to maintain in the summer, as the family's children had gotten older, the landscape no longer suited their lifestyle.
Multi-zoned Entertainment Areas
The transformation this backyard received has been nothing short of magical. The pool is a welcome attraction on hot summer days and the raised, heated spa and firepit are popular gathering spaces throughout the year. Distinct living spaces are delineated by bluestone pavers that lead from one area to the next, and complemented by stone veneers, limestone and Fond du Lac rock-face steps. The owners opted for full-range bluestone, which includes a mix of colors—classic blue as well as undertones of rust, orange and green.
Top-of-the-line Outdoor Kitchen
Beneath a custom rough-sawn cedar pergola with a naturally weathered finish stands a gracious outdoor kitchen and dining area. Stone veneers and a bluestone countertop wrap Kalamazoo Gourmet products including a hybrid-fire grill, double cooktop, pizza oven and more. Heated lamps and ambient lighting encourage the family to enjoy the space in cooler weather.
