It’s still winter here, what about warmth and art instead…

It’s winter in Seattle and so where can one go for warmth and great art! how about St Petersburg!. Florida. Yes that one.

Dividing a yard for specific uses

With this project we have a typical back yard with large lawn area and no level area designated for seating or entertaining. The lawn was uneven and wide open with no sense of enclosure or privacy.

Our client enjoys gathering with friends and outdoor grilling. So we installed a new dining and entertaining patio with curved seat wall. The wall and adjoining planting bed divide the yard into play lawn and level social gathering area.
