Today we’re visiting a backyard transformation by a Jerry Galanti, who you may remember from last summer. I published two projects of his and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring you another! As you can see, this yard started off as a long and narrow stretch of patchy grass, a perfect foundation for big ideas. The homeowners wanted an English garden as well as an area that they could grow their own vegetables and entertain friends and family in. They’re also avid campers so something to help simulate the camping experience was on the list as well.
Grass was ripped out and the separation began. Each main space would highlight a different idea, but first there was a lot of work to be done! You can see the vision already coming together in this photo that was taken during the grass removal process.
A new covered patio helps to frame the view and provides a reprieve from the mid-day sun. A path leads the way through the English garden and into the couple’s new yard. Just past the archway is a gravel based vegetable garden, along with an area for the kids to play and a fire pit to help with the backyard camping experience. I love the way this transformation turned out, and I especially like the zones that the yard was sectioned into. If you want to see more of Jerry’s work, you can check out his website. Thanks so much for sharing, Jerry! -erin
