This young couple receives a nature inspired old world makeover with a touch of modern. The topography of the yard has been transformed creating natural elevation changes and boulders have been added for seating on the new elevation. Fruit trees now surround the boulder seating area. Near the house, there's a leaf stamped pathway leading to a maple leaf stamped patio. On the patio stands a 16-foot high, hand huned pergola. The hand huning or planing of the wood is an old world style of decorating the structure in a one of a kind fashion. The structure is fastened together using the time tested techniques of mortise and tenon joinery. A touch of modern is added, as large planter pots become cushioned seats.
