“It’s a jungle!” said my client. Yes, it was a jungle of less than 300 SF and they wanted to add a lot…built in bench, table, water feature, plant beds, a new tree, swing, bluestone terrace, new fence, storage and more. How to pack it all in and make it work? Read on…

Our creative carpenter Mike Souza, owner of Insulart, constructed a custom horizontal wood fence and a built-in mahogany bench.

We added a plant bed above the bench and had Luciana from Perfect Touch stain the fence a transparent grey to complement the bluestone and the color of the home.

Wood, stone, metal and peastone work together to define a quiet space just steps from busy Cypress Street. All that we need is a table, standing swing and a tree in bloom!
