Outdoor living space shows off function and form

Builder - Tom Medhurst , Landscape architect - Terry A. Reis

When a family loves the outdoors, truly loves being outside, the layout and design of the back yard becomes every bit as important as that in the kitchen or master bedroom. And this family loves being outdoors as much as possible.

Landscape architect Terry A. Ries (pronounced Reece), of the Ohio Valley Group, says that working with homeowners as devoted to the out of doors as these made this project a great deal more interesting than most.

“(The homeowners) wanted to be able to use the back yard as much as possible,” says Ries. “They didn’t just want it to be three seasons, but three very long seasons.”
