Hoschton, Georgia Backyard Remodel

With great working weather the team at Whitwell Landscaping has been tackling project after project. After a cool, lengthy Spring many of our clients are excited to use their newly built outdoor spaces. This project is located in Hoschton, Georgia. Hoschton is an up and coming community in Jackson county. With amazing homes at affordable rates we’ve been doing lots of work in this area. This particular client wanted a simple face lift for their backyard living space. Specifically they wanted a large patio space for entertaining along with a fire-pit for Fall bonfires. The side yard drainage has become an erosion issue due to the topography so a dry river bed was installed.

A quick regrade was needed in preparation for the patio stones.

 

When you think of backyard remodels often time images of wet red clay, trash left by workers, and lengthy timelines come to mind. Smaller jobs like this highlight Whitwell’s professionalism as the client’s wishes are our primary concern. This job along with our other jobs are completed quickly but still with the highest attention to detail.

Heavy machinery is often needed to complete jobs quickly but that’s no excuse to get careless with clients’ yards. We take all precautions to make sure as little damage is done. In the event sod is damaged we replace the damaged area when the job is completed.

This particular patio space was going to wrap around the whole back porch and include a fire pit.

 

Getting the proper grade was the hardest part of the job. An improperly graded space will impede runoff, cause the patio stones to buckle, and cause long term property damage. Our skid steer is a key piece of equipment to get accurate grades while also being efficient. After the grading is done it’s time for the stone work.

Seated below the grill and kitchen are is a firewood storage area. Adding these types of areas make more use out of available space while making the space more user centric. This type of storage is much more appealing than a classic firewood rack.

Dry river beds are a highly efficient way to move runoff off the property. The rocks slow the water down so erosion doesn’t happen.
