Before & After

Slide to see the before and after

This small Bothell backyard features a paver patio and seat wall with plenty of room for a fire pit and extra seating. The cedar arbor, perfect for a bench swing, also provides a little privacy from the neighbors. The composite deck landing abuts steel planters for vegetable gardening which also serves as a backstop for the grill on the deck. The back property line fence was replaced with a welded wire mesh fence to enjoy the beauty of the native growth parcel behind it. The old drain bisected the property and was no longer functioning; the new dry stream creates a beautiful way to capture runoff and improve the site’s drainage.
