GOALS: More entertaining space for a pizza oven and BBQ, keep steep rockery stable, use clients art collections, make it beautiful--and a little 'bohemian'.

They love cooking and entertaining and wanted an outdoor area to include a pizza oven, a BBQ, & seating for 8+. She is an avid collector and has an extensive collection of outdoor glass art and special ceramic figurines from her hometown. It was requested that these items be worked into the design along with colorful plantings and a vegetable garden, Between the home and the neighbor’s home is a 10’ shady area they wanted for quiet seating. The lot is small and narrow with a cliff in the front--what a challenge!
