Drake’s 7 Dees design team are always thinking outside of the box, particularly when space is an issue. In this townhouse setting, with no backyard, the client was looking for a sense of calm and privacy within their limited space. A wrought-iron fence was created around the property to add some privacy and a sense of space. Rather than a straight walkway to the front door, Drake’s team made a slightly winding path creating a more interesting experience as visitors approach. Clumping-bamboo was selected to match the style of the property, while not spreading throughout the modest space. A custom designed patio was created with entirely unique stonework, found exclusively on this property. While they don’t have the largest yard on the block, they likely have the most unique.
Listen above as owner of Drake’s 7 Dees, Drake Snodgrass, describes how Drake’s turned the front yard of this townhouse in Southwest Portland, into the “backyard” of the owners’ dreams.
