Nothing could be saved from the original backyard except for the gas grill. With an empty canvas the client wanted plants to enjoy all summer and a new solid wood fence for warmth and privacy. A detailed plant list was reviewed and the Hufnagel team went to work transforming the space to exceed the clients dreams.

The porcelain tile hardscape was chosen to extend the indoor space seamlessly to the outdoor relaxation zone. A new seepage tank was installed below the hardscape to facilitate drainage requirements.
