This project was the result of the clients need to replace an old delapidated deck that came off of their kitchen/eating nook. They also wanted enough space to entertain groups of 6 to 75, which they do often. They wanted an outdoor kitchen, waterfeature, fireplace, smaller more intimate dining area off the family room and a nice, well behaved garden. What we gave them is a raised patio that steps down onto the lawn and up to the cook island/sitting area. There is a gas fireplace adjacent to the dining area and a small paver patio just off the family room. The garden is planted with small and slow growing shrubs that are easy to care for. And when they entertain large numbers of people, the put up a tent on the lawn and place tables and chairs there.
