My Great Outdoors: Julian & Melanie's Terrace

Name: Julian Downs & Melanie Menge
Location: Astoria, Queens
Type of space: Terrace
Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: We had a blank, 750 square feet terrace space to fill. We chose to build large planter boxes and benches and then added an additional garden plot to grow vegetables. We enjoy entertaining eating meals and sitting around the fire pit on the terrace...

How did you create it? We built all of the large pieces using pre-treated lumber with an eco-safe ebony stain. The design was our own, and as novice carpenters we were thrilled with the results!

Recommended store, site, product or resource? CB2 for the table and chairs, The Union Square Farmers Market for the plants, vegetables and herbs.
