The Deck

The deck was one of the first things we added to the house because without it the only access to the backyard was through the garage or the basement. We love it. We just didn’t enjoy doing it twice.

Foundation Plantings

I find most foundation plantings boring. A few tortured shrubs with some standard annuals plunked in front during the summer. Maybe some hanging baskets. Meh. Fine for a standard colonial maybe. I wanted something different.
