Low maintenance. Did not want to cut grass. The client had a clear view of what they wanted to have in their yard and provided a lot of magazine pictures (including a similar type of wood structure as we built and installed).
Create an aesthetic pleasing yard which is also functional and have additional seating space.
Flowing design which included all of the customers wishes.
Create a semiprivate yard with the wood structures as focal points (as windows in and out of the yard).
