Project Description

These retired clients wanted an outdoor dining and entertaining space with a stepless transition from the indoors. We removed their old deck which was in the shadow of the house and put in an English Garden style covered dining space that borrowed elements from their 50’s era ranch house and their existing woven cedar fence. We placed the structure away from the house to get more sunlight, create a greater sense of space and take advantage of long views into and out of the structure. Plantings are mostly native, wetland and hummingbird friendly species, and a raingarden and permeable pavers were installed to mitigate drainage issues. Side yard improvements, including new gate, pavers and plantings, improve access and provide views out of a bedroom and bathroom.
