Backyard Oasis

How one family reimagined their backyard into a resort-like paradise.

What started out as a birthday gift turned into the backyard of their dreams! 

Bruce and Nancy Winn contacted Borsello Landscaping a little over a year ago to help them transition Nancy’s new endless pool between their walkout basement and their backyard. Bruce wanted to create an inviting exercise area for their new addition. As soon as they contacted Borsello, the ideas started to flow and soon they were building a new deck, redoing the pool deck, adding an outdoor kitchen and even putting in an experimental garden. 

The Winns like to host gatherings. With 7 kids and 29 grandchildren, there is always someone over visiting. Creating a backyard that could have everyone gathered in one place was important to them. They had the space available, so they wanted to do it right. This is where Barsello's head landscaper Dean Stafford stepped in. 

“This is the project of a lifetime,” Dean stated. ”We have transformed their entire site in many ways. We have redone their front landscaping, added a paver driveway, put in an outdoor kitchen, hardscaped the area around the pool, and so much more.” 

Summers by the pool have an almost resort-like feel now for the Winns. Lounge chairs adorn their beautifully landscaped pool area and not too far away is an outdoor kitchen and fireplace that provides the opportunity to maximize the time outside of the house. Who needs a vacation when your backyard is already the resort? 

In addition to their new pool area and deck, the Winns are putting in an experimental garden. On a 1/2 of land located beyond their backyard, the garden will be a place to “pause and stop to embrace the quietness,” states Dean. The garden will have three or four very intentional vista points complete with plantings and stone walls. There will be a garden path with cobblestones and a cedar bridge. The garden will even include swings as well as a zipline over the entire garden. 

“Kids of all ages can sit and stay a while,” said Dean. “The garden will be a place full of whimsy, like their very own personal Winterthur.” 

Borsello Landscaping is so proud of the work their team has completed thus far in this project. It has been an all hands on deck, but they all agree that it has been fun along the way as well. The creative juices have definitely been flowing with this particular project.
