Dufferin Grove Modern Backyard

In downtown Toronto's Dufferin Grove, this elongated property presents an opportunity to transform its layout into distinct, inviting spaces, mitigating its linear appearance.

To alleviate the sense of a stretched expanse, a segmented design approach is embraced. A low, horizontal board screen acts as a subtle divider, flanked by lush gardens, marking the boundary between the dining and BBQ zone and the tranquil lounging area.

Within the lounging section, an ethereal floating wooden bench and a centrepiece fire table create a cosy, welcoming ambience.

Maximising the area's potential, slender raised planters grace the opposite side, optimising usable space without compromising aesthetics.

The landscape palette showcases a harmonious blend of a striking Red Japanese Maple, ornamental grasses, cedars, and sedges. These elements harmonise and soften the patio spaces, adding depth and visual allure to the overall design.
