Funky Food and Music Lounge

Transplants David and Kiki moved to Austin for the vibrant music and food scene, but their stark graveled yard is a far cry from an entertaining space. They want a place to play music and share food and cocktails with friends. Inspired by Austin's eclectic and funky scene, Chris designs an outdoor room with a lounge area with low bench seating and a covered pergola, grass for the couple's dog, and an outdoor bar faced in wood and metal. He also adds a performing stage with a colorful plexiglass screen backdrop, a shell keg water feature, and fence for privacy. Finally, for some fun, Chris adds a graffiti inspired dart board and a large building block game.

Bye Bye Above Ground Pool, Hello Raised Cabana Style Deck

Tim and Robyn Arthur can't use their backyard. The deck is too small for a table and there are no railings separating the deck from the above ground pool.

He includes a metal and wood railing for safety and drapes for privacy. Stairs lead down to a new concrete and turf checked patio with a lounging area and unique water feature.

The Tan, Chill and Grill Yard

The last patio is the outdoor kitchen that boasts a stacked stone island with BBQ grill, copper countertop with aged patina, a mosaic pub style table, and a vertical herb and veggie garden lush with seasonal plants.
