135 Elsie St

Paul would like to take credit for this design, but the client designed this one. Over the years, the client collected manhole covers from his work at a utility company and creatively used it in the design of his backyard. Paul and his team executed the client’s design, including installing retaining walls, blue-stone pavers, and IPE (ironwood) deck, lighting, irrigation, & planting service. Paul used a biscuit joiner to fasten the decking – notice there are no surface nails or screw holes. Cutting circles in the blue-stone was a big challenge. Client was an architect by trade, keeping Paul and his team on their toes.
