Looking good! It seems to fit in so well with the surrounding natural landscape. Love the garden.

Hi Desert Dweller,
That is a blue spruce.
This evening while taking the second round of photos I stepped back a bit too far into the branches that were just pruned back and the back of my head/ hair is clumped together with spruce resin.
On a positive note, it smells good.

Vignette, It is in Marin County, on the side of Mt. Tamalpias overlooking the S.F. bay.

Compost in your shoes,
Thanks for stopping in and leaving your thoughts.
Always appreciated !

thanks to all who took the time to leave a comment.

I like how you chose a chunky aesthetic for the canopy- it really frames the view without getting lost in it.

I guess what is truly amazing to me is that the pool and deck/spa area is actually hanging over the edge of a cliff. The finished project is really nice Michelle, The engineering is awe inspiring... Patrick

This was one of those projects where the clients really made the difference.
They made good decisions from the information that the team brought to them.
As the mantra goes ,: " Good clients make great projects".

thanks for your comments and thoughts.

Good clients may make good projects, but good designers make an amazing deck and pool. I'm in awe - I love it.
