We took an unusable backyard in midtown Toronto and created a usable space for entertaining and a large play area for the children. Safety was paramount for their young identical twins. The glass railing provides this protection while maintaining the view to the lower play area.
The steep slope was made manageable with a set of stone steps and landing which adds architectural interest to this backyard. Privacy cedar fencing was added on the one side to match the existing fence on the other.
The plantings wrap around the perimeter of the yard and through the slope in the middle. Once this grows in this will make a lush backdrop for both the upper patio and the lower play area.
