Red is one of the most powerful of all the warm colors used in design and these homeowners in Silver Spring MD are in the midst of a wonderful transformation within their backyard by transforming their less than functional and unattractive hardscape into one that whispers relaxation along with the rustic hues of red they chose for this endeavor.
These homeowners are busy professionals and have two teen-aged sons, so they wanted the backyard to promote relaxation and fun so their family could make the most out of the time they spend together. They decided upon a screened stand-alone gazebo, a patio with a seating area which encompasses a fire pit, a deck, a hot tub with loads privacy, and an outdoor grill/kitchen area. This construction is “in progress”, but once completed will be the perfect family hot spot or a great place to spend a “stay-cation”.
Archadeck of Maryland had a difficult challenge to overcome because the yard slopes as it descends into the back, and the deck inside corner portrays close proximity to the family room and kitchen, the family room is actually two steps down to the kitchen. It was tough to incorporate the deck and it’s traffic flow with these close quarters. The homeowners did not want to drop the deck down to the latter level because that would entail having three steps down. We were able to make it all fit together as you will see in the design rendering submitted for this structure.
The screened, stand alone gazebo is going to be placed at a 45 degree angle with arches in between the screened panel opening for a stunning effect. The color palette chosen by these homeowners is stunning as well, with hues of brick-red, and red tones used alongside grays for a beautiful rustic feel.
These Silver Spring, MD homeowners chose a Guardian Guardeck in a brick, red-toned color. The paver color they chose is called, Canyon Blend, and it will blend in the red tones with the gray stone. The paver in made by Fendt, and is part of their Spectrum Collection. The fire pit is going to be finished with Onyx red, and the grill will be finished in Onyx natural. The fire pit is gas so we will be running a gas line to it. The homeowners had to get the meter updated to accommodate the fire pit running off the gas line from the house.
We are really excited to see the finished product for these Silver Spring, MD homeowners. Stay tuned for more pictures to come on this glorious project.
