The previous owners had installed a wooden deck right outside of the backdoor.
It was a small space, and hadn't been well cared for. I was determined to get rid of the wood, and instead have a nice patio space for outdoor entertaining. After surveying the project, it was determined that this may be one for the professionals. So a landscape architect was hired and I must admit, it was much more enjoyable to watch from inside. There were some hot days last summer!
Here is the final result...many weeks later. Looking forward to summer yet?
