The patio now drains, thanks to a french drain, and the family uses it all summer.
  ​The raised bed houses a variety of low maintenance plants chosen for texture and color. As the bamboo thickens it will screen the neighbors unsightly shed .
  The cedar arbor will eventually be completely overtaken by evergreen clematis. This will help the patio feel even more private- a true outdoor living space for the Lake Grove family to enjoy.
  ​I love the detailing on the arbor. It jogs to follow the contour of the patio and this allowed us to vary the levels of the top rails. The posts are 6"x6" cedar, a simple choice that makes it feel well proportioned.
