Kate Sparks, founder of Little Dwellings, is a children’s interior designer & product stylist – and we can now crown her Backyard Renovation Queen! Kate has completed a full backyard overhaul using a DIY modular retaining wall system from ModularWalls and our jaws have dropped at the stunning results!
Using the DIY VogueWall Retaining by ModularWalls, Kate has expertly created zones that are adaptable to any season, event or family activity. Her exceptional new backyard features a fire pit area, an outdoor kitchen, outdoor lounge space and freshly landscaped architectural gardens.
“I love the outdoors and I love spending time with my family outdoors…I wanted something that was really practical, hands-on and absolutely beautiful.” – Kate Sparks, @littledwellings
By using ModularWalls’ DIY retaining wall solution, Kate has not only boosted her backyard’s functionality, she has created separate, but connected, living zones for her young family to enjoy all year round.
The retaining solution seamlessly worked in with the style of Kate’s home exterior and it was super easy to install with the help of her handy husband. The new outdoor area perfectly showcases Kate's unique expertise as a stylist and interior designer and it has become a space for her young family to embrace their dream outdoor lifestyle.
“Lots of people just put it in the ‘too hard’ basket – ‘I’ll get somebody else to do it’. But it’s actually not –it can take time, but seriously, sitting here and reflecting on what we’ve achieved – I wouldn’t get anyone else to do it!” – Kate Sparks, @littledwellings.
