Landscape Expert: Mike Convery

A stylish pavilion extends the outdoor living season

A couple with a large family in Centreville, Virginia, wished to better utilize their flat, featureless backyard. They turned to senior landscape designer Mike Convery of McHale Landscape Design to create an expansive garden space that would extend the outdoor season and offer plenty of options for gathering.

The project centers on a versatile cedar pavilion off the back of the property that complements the home’s Colonial-style architecture while reflecting the rustic, wooded abode. The pavilion features an integrated kitchen and bar complete with a grill and exhaust hood, commercial icemaker, double refrigerator and custom cabinetry topped with granite. A large quarried-stone fireplace and natural-gas, lantern-style heaters warm the space into the cooler months, while an attached pergola provides additional seating.
