Backyard Transformation in Tumwater

 AJB Landscaping & Fence removed the old, neglected lawn from this Tumwater backyard and replaced with a paver patio and fresh sod.AJB Landscaping & Fence removed the old, neglected lawn from this Tumwater backyard and replaced with a paver patio and fresh sod.

The Only Thing Left from the Old Backyard Is the Fire Pit!

The backyard of this Tumwater home suffered from neglect due to lack of water and poor maintenance practices. Most of the sod was either dead or infested with weeds. As is farily typical with subdivision development, the yard had onlly basic amenities -- a small concrete pad off of the back sliding window, and not much else.

Rather than just replace the lawn, we worked with the homeowner to create a more inviting space. After we removed the old lawn, we built a paver patio with a matching pathway leading to the front gate. The Western Interlock, Columbia Blend pavers provide a causual, attractive footprint that will require virtually no maintenance. We then added a sitting wall built from Encore retaining wall blocks and matching 2" cap stones. The arc shape provides ample room to sit and enjoy the built-in firepit. (As a sidenote, the fire pit was part of the original backyard. We moved it further back and away from the house so that the family can enjoy the it while still facing the house. It's also safer being set back from the house.

Once the pavers were installed, we lined the patio and pathway with new drain rock. And finally, we installed new sod.

The results, as you can see, were dramatic. Now the yard is much more appealing and offers better separation of space, with a fresh lawn for the kids to play, a paver patio to have cookouts and entertain, and a sitting wall to enjoy peaceful evenings around the fire pit.

Replacing inadquate landscaping left behind by development companies is one of our specialties. It not only makes a home more appealing, it also adds to the value of the home. These types of upgrades, when properly maintained, can easiily pay for themselves when it comes time to sell or have the house reaappraised for loan modifications and home equity loans.
