Outdoor Escapes

In the past few years, I’ve watched as the Knotens, then the Roberts, have put in retaining walls and nice back patios or kitchens. With our large yards, we have big canvases to work with and many of our neighbors have added more living space to their homes by creating these outdoor escapes.

I recently had an opportunity to photograph the wonderful space that Gena and Dr Roy Morrison commissioned Scott Greene (Boulevard Homes) to create in their backyard. Using the surrounding hickory trees as a design motif, Scott has created a “fire/conversation pit” (shaped like a hickory leaf) that allows for an appreciation of our lovely surroundings here in Country Place.
