We will start at the front porch that was built using the same materials as the house. On the upper level there are two built-in planter boxes with impatients planted every spring.
This is the side walkway from the garage to the front porch
To the backyard, after walking thru the gate this walkway leads up to the screened-in porch that was built a few years after the deck was completed. To the right a perennial garden
This is the perennial garden in full bloom with an overall look of the pool, sun deck and all the way to the left the shade structure for the bar
Going along the walkway and down a few steps to the right we are at pool level with a view of the main deck
A closer look at the landscape, bar and sun deck
Inside the bar
The landscape to the right of the bar with the sun deck and notice the upper waterfall in the center of the photograph
A view of the upper waterfall, upper pond, river leading to the left and the lower pond
Moving to the back of the pond where you can see the lower waterfall and the shed
The lower pond when the Black-eyed Susans are in bloom
The back side of the bar showing the staircase to the upper deck
Moving to the left of the property is a view of a beautiful Lime-Greem Cut Leaf Maple
Looking to the left a little more is the shed, when the deck was first built this was a sand box for the kids, now since they have long grown out of the sand box faze, a more useful shed is there
Standing on the kitchen deck an overall look at the property. The screened-in porch is out of the picture to the right
While walking around photographing there is this dragonfly landscape ornament near the pond that a real dragonfly landed on, with camera in hand, viola That’s Kewl.
I built this deck in 1984 and I have been maintaining it and the property for 27 years.
