It was wintertime when our crews at Hufnagel Landscaping and Construction started this small urban backyard renovation. Our crews at Hufnagel Landscaping and Construction can work year round weather permitting. First off the existing stark white plastic fence needed to be replaced with a warm natural wood fence to invite the visitor to stay and enjoy fresh air and the, soon to be planted in spring, trees and plants.

The new bluestone trimmed and travertine hardscape patio creates the perfect transition from indoors to the private, outdoor, urban, backyard sanctuary. A custom built in corner bench was crafted for visitors to gather around and take in the afternoon sunsets. Tall metal raised container beds are ready for a long awaited vegetable garden. We can’t wait to see the final project blooming over the summer!
