This project began with the typical Stapleton Infinity backyard – an unusable small patio and a square of turf slanting sharply toward the fence. The client had a dream of a modern outdoor multi-level family retreat.

To accomplish this, we chose rich Brazilian Cherry composite decking for the main surface.This decking is extremely durable and absolutely gorgeous. As you can see from the pictures, the quality and appearance of composite decking has revolutionized in recent years. The deck steps down to different functional levels following the grade.This helps avoid the “perch” affect that decking often has.The lowest destination is a sitting area surrounded by a custom built deep seating bench. An outdoor kitchen enclosure was built also out of the composite decking material.The horizontal planks give a clean, modern, look. The space also includes a custom built sandpit, Campania re-circulating fountain, and wooden trellis structures, with wire lattice upon which to grow various varieties of grapes.
