This is something a little different from the other designs that I previously posted.

The clients in Virginia Highlands several years ago presented us with a weed infested backyard. They did not care to have any type of lawn, and preferred to have a beautiful space to enjoy looking at from the main floor and their screened porch. After going through the design process with them, we began the installation. As you will see in the photos, what began as an unused weed infested space is now a beautiful backyard garden requiring very little maintenance. The before photo is included and was taken at almost the exact same angle as the after photo looking into the backyard. The After photo was taken 4 years after installation.
Also designed and built was the custom Cedar gate providing entry into the garden. We personally custom built this gate for them. As you will notice, there are no visible fasteners from the main view on the gates. All lumber was milled to match. Every joints is half-lapped and fitted tight. This allows for no required diagonal support as every joint is supporting the structure. The posts are pressure treated pine, but we wrapped them in cedar. We dadoed the groove, creating the upper detail and made the caps to finish it off. These gates required hours of works at our large saws, but the end product is unique and the clients were ecstatic.
