Contest Brief

I need landscape drawings or renderings created for my back yard. The goal is to create a patio that works well in the space and can deal with some elevation change and traffic flow and include the below requirements.

***Acceptable submissions - Sketches or renderings of the backyard in plan view or perspective like attached sample plan view. Your sketches should at least look this good. A perspective shot or two would be even better. Color would also be great. I also have CAD files for the house in chief architect home designer pro (.plan) format and .dxf files if you are faster with that***

Requirements:
-Privacy fence all the way around
-Paver or concrete patio either a rectangle shape or rounded of about 15 feet x 15feet located on the garage side of the yard
-Space for the grill, (I like it up against the house as shown in the images, but should it be up on a small deck)
-Walkway from existing driveway sidewalk steps to patio/sidewalk to mudroom door and how best to connect the elements and where elevation will change (mudroom is the small glass door coming out of addition
-Seating for 5-8 people with a fire pit or chimney, we don't need a dining table outside just casual seating
-It would also be nice to have a small water feature also
-Then we would like some evergreens added around the yard to complement things
-Need stair ideas also for the steps from the mudroom door as well as off the patio doors.

I'm located in St. Louis Park MN 55416
Good luck

    I don't want to do too much stone or gravel. Make the main material for the yard grass with the patio being pavers or concrete then feel free to mix in some accents of gravel or mulch as a border up against the fence or something.

    please point the location on google map, approximate , close town would work, this is to choose the correct vegetation for your area. This kind of creativity contest is better sealed.
