St. Catharines

Urban Delight

An outdated backyard gets a refreshing upgrade.

An outdated pool and patio

The homeowners of this St. Catharines property wanted a backyard where they could relax and entertain. Although they did have a pool with a concrete patio, the space wasn’t big enough for their large circle of friends and both were outdated and in need of repair.

Making the most of a narrow backyard

The long, narrow backyard wasn’t without its challenges. Access was very tight, making it difficult to get the heavy machinery needed to complete the project into the yard — but we were able to make it work.

A place to relax and entertain friends

In the end, we were completely refreshed the pool and patio area, adding extra space and exciting features that turned a tired backyard into an urban delight  — and the perfect place to host epic backyard barbecues!

Key Design Features

  • A wood-burning fireplace was incorporated into the seating area, using brick accents in the fireplace design to match the reclaimed brick on the house.
  • Added a new dining and cooking area adjacent to the pool with under-counter lighting and covered by a pergola, giving the space shade and a resort-like ambiance.
  • The new patio connects the pool to the other spaces and the Wiarton Ledgestone used to construct the kitchen and fireplace ties everything together beautifully.
