Many summer days will be spent relaxing and entertaining on the private deck overlooking the lush, green herb and flower gardens below. A large awning covers the deck and offers a shady, peaceful place to catch an occasional glimpse of small wildlife in the sprawling backyard. Endless varieties of perennial plantings and mature trees, including pink dogwood, lilac, hydrangea, azalea, and forsythia, provide beauty and shade throughout the changing seasons as perfectly placed ornamental grasses sway in the breeze. An outdoor shed, with custom storage modifications, offers ultimate organization for all of your garden tools.
