Backyard Bliss

at Upper saddle river

The owners of this Saddle River property wanted a backyard that they could enjoy and have the features they wanted while also having lawn space. Knowing that, Visionscape Design was able to give them a design that fit all of their needs.

The main area of this backyard is a 3000 SF freeform patio made of  Cambridge XL Limestone Quarry blend pavers with coal 6” x 9” paver borders giving ample room for many different features. First, the outdoor kitchen & bar is veneered with Marmiro Orca 4” Split Face and topped with a leathered gray granite with a polished finish. This outdoor kitchen and bar combination is the perfect size for cooking and hanging out with friends while the kids play around the yard. With a grill, ice maker, garbage and recycling combination drawer, outdoor fridge and plenty of storage, this kitchen is perfect for anything you could throw at it.

 

This main section of patio is also home to a gorgeous 936 SF freeform vinyl pool elegantly sized for cooling off or playing around, this pool fits wonderfully with the size of the residence and property as a whole. The pool is brought to a whole new level of elegance with the double coping which helps to bring out the coloring in both the pavers and the color of the vinyl interior of the pool. The addition of the triple coping paver border around the pool is able to achieve a different layer of dimension that brings the elegance of this backyard design to another level. 

 

In a yard with so many places to relax and enjoy the outdoors, it is important to be able to have a space that allows you to feel something a little bit more. The firepit area is set apart from the main patio area to achieve a secluded element making it a destination location in the yard. The firepit is paired with a seat wall allowing for ample seating caped with stone pillars giving an extra layer of dimension. 

This design would not be complete without the three-in-one cabana/bathroom/storage area. The 25’ x 25’ cabana with a 19’ x 25’ roof overhang is the perfect place to get out of the sun while still enjoying a beautiful summer day and the perks of having the bathroom attached is great for a pool party without your guests having to go into the house! This structure is the perfect representation of utilizing space by using the second enclosed portion as a storage area for all your summer toys without taking up space in the garage.
