Here are a couple before and after photos from our Litchfield project that we completed last summer. As you can see, the before pictures were prior to the addition that was built on the backside of the garage. The project included a set of stairs from the driveway to the new lower patio, the surrounding gardens plus a garden renovation of all the existing gardens on the property.
I like how the whole project came together. The small quaint patio acts as an entrance stoop into the new exercise room and looks out over sunrises, a meadow and an elephant sculpture by Denis Curtiss.
