Yesterday I opened my inbox to find an email from Danny Cullerton from Aristata Land Arts. She sent along a series of before & after photos from one of her recent projects in Portland, OR and I know you guys are going to love the makeover! The landscape surrounds a beautiful old Victorian house and the re-work definitely brings out a ton of character in this lovely house!

I like that Danny was able to step away from the typical landscape findings of a home from this era and swap them for a bit of a rustic modern vibe. I especially love how much larger this part of the yard feels now! The drop adds a nice bit of dimension and the wooden pathway draws the eye to the side of the house.

Of course, this isn’t a true “before” photo, but it still shows how things progressed into the next stage…

A cool new spot to hang out with friends while sipping cocktails and eating great food. Everybody needs a place like this in their yard. And that swoopy metal structure over head is pretty fantastic.

Another view of the swoopy metal thing along with tons of space to lounge and chat. I’m digging the paver and flagstone patio and will probably do something similar some day for its cost effectiveness. I really love the built in bench, too. This is a wonderful makeover- I can’t even pick out one favorite thing because I love it all! Thanks so much for sharing, Danny! -erin

Wow now that’s a nice transformation, he did a great job ! Do you know how long did it take for this transformation to take place ?

Is that front yard retaining wall made of steel panels? Can you tell me the name of the product? I also like that it has those small “columns” with stones inside them. Very creative.
