HONOR AWARD SASAK LANDSCAPING, INC. http://sasaklandscaping.com/ The client wanted an area that reflected the ambiance of the outdoors, but that would still function for cooking, entertaining and sitting by the fire on a cool evening. The patio has a custom granite bar with raised backsplash and built-in lighting, built-in stainless steel garbage container and utensil drawer. The details on the fire pit compliment the bar and grill area. The grill is built in and continues the theme using the same accent stone as found on the bar. The patio is nestled in the woods and makes for a great retreat on a hot summer day or cool evening!

http://www.americanbeautylandscaping.com/ The owners of this modest home had remodeled the interior, and replaced the siding and the roof. Their deck was no longer functional and they desired a paver patio. The circular fire pit area make a nice place for a comfortable conversation. The open floor plan gives a sense of spaciousness and the banding helps to delineate the spaces. The customized kitchen repeats the materials and colors of the new lamp posts, fire pit and seating wall. Parents, children and guest now enjoy this new space every chance they get!
MERIT AWARD DECK CREATORS http://www.deckcreator.com/ The homeowner wanted to maintain the views of their Koi Pond from the kitchen window and incorporate the curves of the pond into the deck. This multi-level deck adds a new twist to an older style home. The upper level features a seating area. A lower level incorporates a cooking area with ceramic grill, refrigerator, drawers, storage and a bar seating. The thin balusters were used to allow the homeowner to see the Koi Pond below. The curved deck fits in nicely with the existing landscape.
