One of the advantages of owning a multi-level home with an outdoor living area upstairs is that you can use your ground-level space to create a garden room or alfresco area that serves an entirely different purpose. In this instance, the owners' desire for an outdoor spa proved the perfect motivation to redesign and upgrade their unappealing backyard.
The upstairs deck looked down onto a very ordinary, seldom-used, sloping backyard. This had remains of previous structures and a timber retaining wall that didn't quite make the grade. Although space was relatively small, we felt we could easily create a spa area with an adjacent lawn, which would look visually stunning when viewed from the deck above and provide a lovely vista of the landscaped grounds from the spa itself.
