Applewood Hillside Terrace
Award of Excellence 2011 ALCC
Composite decking with a new airy pergola above replaced an aging wood deck and low overhead cover. The deteriorated railroad tie retaining walls were removed, and a fewer number of wider terraces were configured with short, separated stairways to the top of the hillside. The sitting-height wall along the new deck provides some additional informal seating. The backyard was further enhanced with expanded flagstone patios and a hot tub alcove.
