This is a landscaping project that we completed in Schaumburg, IL.
Per our client’s wishes, we designed their yard with a French country feel, to match their interior decor! Connecting the 1st floor to the basement level, we incorporated a spiral iron staircase, which leads you down to a tranquil shade garden and fiber optic star panel mounted under the deck. To anchor the landscape, we added a stucco fireplace with a pass-through firebox, covered by a cedar pergola – talk about a conversation piece! The floor is made of cobbled clay pavers that cascade down to the sunken terrace, which wraps the patio & fireplace and provides a more intimate space. This design also provides a kitchen for outdoor cooking, serving and entertaining! Along the perimeter of the landscape, you can escape to a soothing waterfall and serene pond, which becomes a perfect backdrop when lit at night. Attractive plantings frame the property for privacy. This gorgeous French country manor is only missing the grapevines!
