What a difference a change in material and color make! The homeowners wanted to enjoy their golden years with less maintenance. The traditional stained pressure treated lumber was removed and a new composite lumber was installed in its place. A storage space with an access door was added under the deck to provide increased function along with the modern aethestic improvement. The lighter color really opens up the small backyard and the change in landscape provides an updated privacy screen for them. They spend a lot of their summer time entertaining family and friends in their pool/deck area and are thrilled to show off their new outdoor space!!
