Lakeside Retreat in Roaming Shores

Gorgeous Russell Retreat

Gorgeous Russell Retreat

This full yard renovation in Russell began with the addition of raised garden beds and a fruit orchard in the front yard. Incorporating the natural slope of the land, a perfectly manicured par three golf hole was conceived, complete with a putting green and bunkers.

The deck remains aesthetically pleasing with the use of undermounted hardware, keeping the visible surface clean....

Metal railings were selected to line the deck because they complement the style of the house and allow for optimal viewing of the lake beyond it. The homeowners now have the space and capability to entertain their large family and others, with multiple patio tables and seats surrounding a new fire pit....

A composite deck ensures low maintenance while natural cedar railings offer a complementary and interesting element.
