Modern Backyard Makeover

Chris creates a sleek, modern backyard getaway for Maria, Mike and their baby. The new parents' modern aesthetic is on full display with their funky backyard studio. But the landscape around it is embarrassingly unkempt and unsafe for the baby. The couple ask Chris to design a yard that reflects their sense of style, while also bringing a sense of calm and order to their chaotic space. Chris puts his team to work building a deck that mimics the modern lines of their studio. They also build a raised vegetable garden with a uniquely modern sensibility, a privacy fence that envelopes a cozy sitting area and a play area for the baby and her friends. Each element of the backyard reinforces the straight lines of modern design, making a cohesive, yet inviting backyard.
