A Pop of Paprika

Lounge chairs in stone and paprika-colored fabrics let accessories shine. Greco and zebra-print pillows add a modern pop.

Fun Summer Kitchen

A back deck is the perfect spot to soak up the sun or fire up the grill for a summer picnic. The outdoor kitchen island features smooth granite-style surfaces and a manufactured stone foundation.

Framed Deck and Bocce Court

The deck and bocce court frame were custom-constructed from Trex, a decking material fashioned from reclaimed wood and plastic.

A Delicious Garden

A vertical garden provides a bounty of fruits and vegetables – namely strawberries, tomatoes, sweet Vidalia onions, bok choy and mesclun - during Florida's long growing season.

Dual Composting

The drum composter features dual chambers; as one batch of organic material matures another batch can be dispensed. The fully enclosed chambers are constructed of rust-resistant galvanized steel.
