Chris and his team are asked to turn a backyard filled with children's toys into a sophisticated outdoor space with a focal point that will draw visitors into the yard. Hillary, James and their 9-year-old daughter, Kate are desperate for a backyard upgrade. Kate has outgrown her playset and playhouse and wants a more grownup space where she can spend time with her mom. Her parents love to entertain and want a backyard renovation that will make better use of their large yard, while also being a beautiful complement to their traditional design aesthetic. Chris demonstrates how to create more usable space in a yrd by building hardscape structures. The finished design includes an arbor with extra seating, a stone patio and a tea room tucked under a tree, where Kate and her mother plan to have their own parties.
