St Johns Deck & Arbor
We love when our clients become friends. Fred and Randy had just moved into their home and were starting with empty slate and a lot of goals. It was a perfect match for Placecraft’s comprehensive design and consultation process. We knew they wanted a covered deck, but in talking with them a bit more, in addition to entertaining we learned that Fred wanted establish a backyard bird habitat and Randy wanted to grow more veggies. So our design included ample sunny space for an annual garden and eventual greenhouse, raised beds along the front and a trellised soil beds in the brick for climbing perennials. We also added at no charge a ramp out of our scraps for easier access for their dog when we learned the he suffered from arthritis in his hips.
