Hyde Park Modern Retreat – Back Yard

by Rodney Stoutenger / May 14, 2015

Check out this project in Austin Home Magazine! 

There is so much happening on this project we’ve had to divide it into two parts for ya! Make sure you check out the Front Yard.

Truly, one of Native Edge’s Crown Jewels, this project is one of our all time favorites. When the homeowner moved in, this property’s dated landscape had become a disjointed overgrown mess. The customer’s requirements for this space were to increase the entertainment space, a modern and natural zen feel, better access between the various areas of the yard, and a Art Studio that could double as guest quarters.

We tripped the amount of outdoor entertaining space with three main areas; outdoor living, lounge area, and space for the dogs. A custom gas fire pit comes off the studio area to anchor the entertaining area. The furniture chosen for this section stacks on itself to create a obelisk; when not in use, allows additional square footage for the patio and doubles as an interesting visual.

We brought in our friends at McKinney York Architects to help us design and build this world class studio. For the outdoor shower we designed and built a custom iron shower caddy nick-named “The Butler.” The butler stands at attention, discreetly holding your towels and toiletries while you shower. The studio is anchored by a raised turf area to soften the hardscape, and offer a place for the dogs to lay, while the artist is at work!

Rob Roy Patio and Outdoor Kitchen

by Jake / November 17, 2014

IMG_5526_FotorAfter completing pool construction several years ago, these home owners wanted to extend the functionality of their existing limestone pool deck by adding additional lounging space and increasing the outdoor living area.

Built into a hillside in bee caves Texas, we used natural stone materials locally sourced to extend the existing outdoor pool patio and build a custom outdoor kitchen.

The patio includes an 18 foot built in stone bench designed for lounging by the pool and sun bathing. The kitchen features custom pored concrete countertops, a “big green egg” grill, 32 inch cooktop, and a custom cedar pergola for shade.

See the progress of this project on our blog!
