English Style Family Room

Episode DIND-312H

With six teenage children, the Barrett family is teeming with energy! Things inside can get a little crazy. So, single mom, Elinore Barrett has asked Dean and Derek to help them turn their backyard into a tranquil, English-style family room for all of them to enjoy. Dean and Derek start by demolishing the current brick patio. From there they have a clean slate to create landscaping with nooks for the family to enjoy together. Dean and Derek take advantage of some of the yard's natural features like a large tree to create intimate settings for seating areas. They install a self-contained waterfall to further add to the peaceful atmosphere. In addition, quaint touches like arbors, statues and urns make this space a unique place to sit and relax.
