Zig Zag Yard - Denver, CO

Design for efficiency...

This was a challenging design project. There was a serious spatial limitation with the yard being only sixteen feet wide. Our solution was to divide the yard with a boardwalk path on a diagonal to maximize the usable available space. This gave the client room four an outdoor dining area flanked with a vegetable garden bed and vine trellising and left enough space on the opposite of the diagonal for an artificial turf pet area and a cozy intimate space for enjoying the fire pit.



"Dustin really knows his stuff when it comes to making small yards livable and usable. My postage-stamp-sized lawn just sat there for years, but now, it's a living space that I enjoy in every season. The custom-built fire pit that Dustin placed has become the focal point of my yard." - Matt Kranz, Homeowner
