Glen Williams Contemporary

This backyard in an estate residential subdivision near Georgetown/ Halton Hills, has a beautiful forest view of the adjacent conservation lot directly behind them.

The lounge area has etched, tempered glass privacy screens on two sides and is also edged by large Colorado Spruce, and Diablo Ninebark to create the required feeling of privacy and enclosure. A custom design shade canopy tops a contemporary wooden pergola, with bold modern outdoor lounge furniture and a fire table as the centrepiece. The feature paving in this area is black, Chinese granite.

The dining area is sunken into the grade to add interest and privacy. Additional etched glass panels block the view of the neighbouring property. The entrance to the dining area, with it’s central steps and a mortared wall with sandstone coping on either side adds a touch of formality

Simple blocks and mass plantings of shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses ensure that the contemporary feel of the site is continuous throughout.  They have also been selected to provide seasonal colour and bloom in the homeowners selected favorite colours.

The covered porch and the walkways are constructed of wet-laid, square-cut, Owen Sound Erosan flagstone.
