Mokena, IL


This project is located in Mokena, IL, which is s small suburb town southwest of Chicago, IL. The population is around 20,000 with over 6,500 households. It`s a fast-growing city with custom homes popping up in every corner. With easy Metra train access into Chicago, IL Mokena has become a hotspot for growing families who work in the big city but want to raise their family in quiet town with good schools.

Our clients contacted VizX Design Studios to help with the design concept of their new outdoor living space. They wanted a swimming pool but could not figure out where the pool would go due to the huge slope in the backyard. They have the best of both worlds, with a walkout basement on one side and I standard backdoor walkout on the other side. These two features offer great views but an 8-foot elevation difference which makes it a challenged for building any additional outdoor structures.

Having a sloped yard created a budgetary challenge because of the additional cost of using retaining walls and large amounts of gravel. We designed several different options to find the most comprehensive design with the lowest impact on the budget.

Our clients had a huge component list of spaces they wanted. They wanted a large sitting area for parties and gatherings with a fire feature. The list also included a liner swimming pool with a sundeck for chilling in the pool on those hot sunny days. They requested a location for a hot tube also. We were able to make everything fit into their budget and style.
