An Arkadelphia backyard retreat created by Better Lawns & Gardens in our September 2017 issue provides relaxation and enjoyment for homeowners Terri and Taylor King. David Munsey, III of Better Lawns & Gardens lets us in on his process of renovating the space into an oasis worth sharing.
At Home in Arkansas: How did you meet the homeowners?
David Munsey, III: Richard Harp worked with the Kings on a renovation of the interior of their home, and when it came time to talk about the backyard, he suggested the Kings meet with us.
AH: What was the jumping off point when planning the outdoor space?
DM: This is their forever home, and we wanted to help them create something that would last and that they could enjoy with their kids and grandkids for years.

AH: What is special about this space to you?
DM: Because of the panoramic view that changes with the seasons, the Kings wanted to keep the line of sight clear. So, the pavilion is essentially three rooms under one roof, which includes a kitchen, a sitting area, and a dining space.
AH: Were there certain elements the homeowners wanted to incorporate? How did you execute these requests?
DM: Mrs. King likes color, so Loren at Antique Brick Outdoors really worked with her to find cushions and fabrics that would tie everything together with the natural environment.
AH: As the homeowner, how do you view your outdoor space now?
King: This is my oasis; I really enjoy coming home at the end of the day and having a place to relax.
