Location: Lincoln, CA
Welcome to Liz, who is onto something truly wonderful with this garden deck that juxtaposes the colors and textures of new growth with vintage patinas.:
"I built my husband a music studio and added a deck facing what had been an above-ground pool and what was an ugly pit full of debris. We removed most of the pool structure and added a dump truckload of topsoil. Our vegetable garden is now a jungle - the tomato plants are about 5 feet high. The deck is the perfect place to relax and have a cigar (husband, not me). [more pics below jump]
A small wooden folding table I found at a thrift store holds a vintage ashtray and our coffee mugs. A planter of zinnias provides some color.
