A Garden of Delights Designed for Enchanting Outdoor Entertainment

An enchanting, cascading garden is the finishing touch on this newly developed home. The garden was designed for a pair of experienced gardeners who wanted to create a landscape for outdoor entertaining. The result was a garden with multiple spaces for different outdoor experiences, each framed with their own unique garden style.

“THANK YOU Flintstones team for making our dream home all that much more dreamy!”

Client objectives

When the homeowners moved into this newly developed home, the backyard was an unfinished pile of dirt. As keen gardeners who loved to entertain, they wanted to make this a space they could really enjoy, and build a garden where they could creatively express themselves.

Project challenges

The tiered nature of the backyard, which includes a rocky outcrop, required complex hardscaping to frame different plateaus and garden beds.


“We have mixed emotions about the completion of our project – it seems so long ago now that we were discussing the design possibilities in our backyard on that cold December day.

We are so happy that we made the decision to move forward with our project and have Flintstones complete it before the Summer months so that we can enjoy our space. Looking back at “before” pictures, we can hardly believe it’s the same space. Even our 88 year old mom has ventured into the back yard on a number of occasions to look at the masonry work so expertly completed by Trent and his team and the amazing pond/waterfall so meticulously detailed by Tim. To say WE LOVE IT is an understatement. Neighbours have been curious and some have asked to view the backyard. Their first impression…OMG!!!

This weekend, we planted close to 100 boxwoods to line the edges of the garden and define the spaces that have been designated for shade plants, roses and othe sun-loving annuals. The sound of the waterfall muffles the traffic noise and creates an oasis that we know we will enjoy for years and years to come. At night, the space is once again transformed into something magical due to the lights and ambience. We have been to many resorts in our travels and each time we bring home ideas that we had one day hope to incorporate into our dream home. With the help of Flintstones and big Mike’s lighting suggestions, that dream is now a reality.

We have been talking about the next phases of design and of course we would love Flintstones to be apart of that. This is mainly due to the workmanship, professionalism and our ability to connect with you all. We so appreciate the speed in which our questions, emails, etc. were answered throughout the project.

We will look forward to the next phase – hopefully not too far into the future.

THANK YOU Flintstones team for making our dream home all that much more dreamy!”
