Is it possible to enjoy the outdoors when all you have is rickety steps on the back of your new house? No! You call Intimate Spaces! Since the rear sliding door is extremely elevated, the first priority was to build a beautiful cedar deck, at door level, for a smooth transition from the house. The second phase was to build a paver patio which includes a cedar arbor and bench swing that match the deck. After the back yard was landscaped we moved to the front of the house. Keeping it simple, we added natural stone walls and enhanced the landscaping by incorporating new plantings for a super clean look and improved curb appeal.
