The Captiva model home in Lenexa features an outdoor oasis carved from the natural planes of the wooded lot. The team was challenged to use landscaping features to enhance outdoor living and privacy without disturbing the natural scenery. All mature trees were to be preserved and incorporated into the design.
In the front yard, luxurious curb appeal was created by custom-designing an address monument with a hanging light fixture, raising the landscape beds and designing a natural-looking sweeping walkway and stone retaining walls. To boost visual interest and function here, a natural stone floating bench added at the edge of the walkway allows visitors to sit and take in the landscaping and view.
The backyard offers a relaxed, casual feel with a custom-built and installed hanging daybed under the lanai, as well as a hanging swing nestled in the adjacent cedar trees to add more seating and ambiance. A fire pit is strategically positioned among mature cedar trees, with limestone boulders randomly placed around the fire pit to provide seating. A natural stepping stone walkway and stair accesses the lower patio.
