Combining Outdoor Living and Art – The “Guitar” Patio Nashville
Creating a Beautiful and Unique Patio Design so Fitting for Nashville
This unique, custom patio was built in the very heart of Nashville. We used our experience and niche expertise in combining art and landscaping to design a beautiful backyard patio that is perfect for the Nashville scene. From the moment we first lay eyes on this backyard piece, from the moment we take it all in, the casual observer can see that this project really puts the “custom” in Custom Landscape Design. That is the trademark of Smart Scapes LLC.
We service Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, Mount Juliet, Hendersonville, Murfreesboro and neighboring cities in Tennessee.
An Outdoor Patio that Combines Art, Style, and Function
It’s projects like this one, the infamous “Guitar Project” that we enjoy doing the most. Here, we took an idea, a very “Nashvillian” idea by the way, and found a way to make a unique and one-of-a-kind backyard patio that was practical, functional, and artistic all in one. In this special, landscaping and backyard custom design piece, we incorporated our garden design and landscape design into a customized guitar fixture. Additionally we made sure that each section of the landscaped “guitar” actually functioned as a usable backyard item.
We Didn't Forget the Benefit of Permeable Pavers
As an added, eco-friendly bonus, we used permeable pavers in every part of the guitar piece, which allows for the passage of rain and storm water right back into the soil where it belongs. Our use of permeable paving blocks made for a safer, slip-free paved surface too.
A Functioning Backyard Patio "Guitar"
On the guitar fixture itself, the picnic table and chairs make up the headstock and tuning plugs of the guitar. The fountain and splash pad towards the middle of the guitar also act as the neck and frets of the guitar. Then, when we look at the base of the guitar, the fire pit rests right at the sound hole of the guitar, and the seating wall rests at the very base of the guitar image, composing the saddle portion of the guitar's base.
Custom Fire Pit and Seating Wall
What our clients loved most about this landscaping project was that the guitar piece rests not only as the focal point of the backyard, and not only as an impeccable art piece and a unique, custom landscaping design, but that the entire fixture is fully functioning and usable. Our clients can now hold backyard picnics at the table and chairs. The kids can play on the splash pad and in the “fret fountain.” And at the end of the day, Mom and Dad can entertain guests around the fire pit and built-in seating wall.
Expert Landscaping Ideas Incorporated into our Patio Design
This backyard patio piece isn’t all looks either. In fact, in this project, we made sure to incorporate multiple, customized and practical landscaping ideas that all serve a valuable function for the backyard itself. Some of these utilitarian incorporations were:
- Foundation planting for aesthetic appeal and rain retention.
- Grading of the backyard for ease of mowing and trip-free, stumble-free walking and activities.
- Permeable drainage for storm water control.
- A permeable concrete brick patio design for both aesthetic appeal and enhanced usability.
- Custom concrete block staining to color the permeable pavers in the exact tint desired.
- A custom table for pleasant outdoor dining.
- The “Fret Fountain” as a splash pad for recreational fun in the heat.
- Custom pavers, all permeable, specifically selected for aesthetic appeal and eco-friendly function.
- A fire pit for late-night socializing and enjoyment.
- A seating wall also made from permeable block paving stone.
- Horseshoe pits for endless hours of backyard fun and games.
The Final Touches to our Outdoor Living Project
As a final touch, our crew went the extra mile on this outdoor living project by designing and building customized gardens around the guitar piece, incorporating client-selected plantings, mulches, and sods that complement the guitar itself. These plantings supply the necessary foliage and greenery that any Nashville backyard should have. We are proud to say that this patio and outdoor dining design now affords everything that our clients need to enjoy their backyard for countless days and nights to come. And, thanks to the combined efforts of our designers and installation crew, it does so with immaculate functionability and a totally unique appearance.
We know our Guitar Project will bring years of joy and use to our Bellmeade, Nashville clients. The guitar piece acts not only as a patio, dining area, fire pit, and a seating area but also as a splash pad and fountain, all combined as the real eye-catcher of the backyard. It will bring years of joy and use.
