In The News - Summer newsletter 2011

In The News

Summer is here and it is starting to heat up. It has been a really weird and long spring so I am almost glad the heat is finally here!! Well almost – every time it gets above 80 degrees I kind of get a little crabby. Thank goodness for shade and ice cold lemonade (or the beverage of your choice).

It has been fun working on so many different residential projects this year. We had a chance to design several unique yards like; a permaculture back yard, to develop a long term master plan for a family retreat, design a modern/contemporary outdoor entrainment space, remodel a water front back yard to include a multi level patio, and design a multi level deck on a steep hillside, just to name a few. Some of the yards we were able to design this year were in Boise, Hidden Springs, Homedale, Payette, Nampa, Eagle and Caldwell. I would like to thank all of our current and past clients for their support.

In our summer issue we are going to talk about one of the more popular trends over the last couple of years, Fire Pits. We will also talk about adding EZ-Roll gravel patios and paths as a hardscape item in your yard. It is summer, so it is the perfect time to discuss one of my favorite trees, the Canada Red Chokecherry. In our project spot light we will review the Somerset Ridge residence, which details a large private courtyard, with an outdoor kitchen and dining area. In our Product Spotlight we will highlight an interesting outdoor room product – PrecisionCraft Outdoor Living Timber outdoor rooms and shade structures. I hope you sit back and enjoy the summer issue of “Sense of Place”.
