August 2018

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!!

September 2014

The homeowners had a new pool house installed so they decided to re do the patio as well. After a 3-D design plan was completed we installed a 2000 square foot patio with Rinox pavers and Rio wall for the pool coping. Different color borders were used along with a Porto Kit for added detail.

A sheer descent water feature with burmed plantings was installed on the corner as an anchor and focal point, new sod and plantings were the finishing touch for the wedding they were having in September!!
