Our client was hoping to bring their old yard and deck to life, re-envisioning it as a three-season series of spaces for their family and friends to enjoy. The new, expansive deck allows for many uses under cover – including year round cooking at the new outdoor kitchen. The louvers on the structure open to allow sunlight into the house and close to protect the space underneath from rain. A second, lower deck serves as extra space. In additional to these new outdoor living rooms, a putting green was added (which their dog also likes) and the border planting was revised and simplified. Landscape lighting adds the finishing touches to this new backyard.
