Floating Deck Party Yard

A homeowner that's struggling with a backyard that's fallen into ruin accepts Matt Blashaw's offer to transform it with defined features. Taking a cue from the homeowner's eclectic style, Matt replaces a patchy lawn, rickety shade structure, and crumbling concrete pond with a system of curved floating redwood decks. Together, Matt and the homeowners build a new gate with "windows" that give the fence line a sleek, modern look. They pour a concrete garden wall that is treated to make it look like wood. A pergola with privacy screens creates a new area for seating. An old shed gets a facelift. And in the center of the yard, Matt and the homeowners place a Jntuanantapur concrete and metal fire table, which highlights an inviting entertainment space.
