A contemporary back yard with clean lines, softened by the smooth stucco planters and redwood deck and benches. The perfect harmony between concrete and wood creates a modern yet soft feel; important to keep in check so the space doesn’t feel cold. A bracket was welded to give the benches a nice angle, giving the bench a level of comfort. The fire pit and planters were created by a smooth stucco texture with a taupe color, continuing the modern yet warm feel. The existing front door step got a boost with some bluestone overlay, bringing out the color of the welcoming door.
