Seattle Cozy PatioContemporary Patio, Seattle
In Seattle's Fremont neighborhood SCJ Studio designed a new landscape to surround and set off a contemporary home by Coates Design Architects. The narrow spaces around the tall home needed structure and organization, and a thoughtful approach to layout and space programming. A concrete patio was installed with a Paloform Bento gas fire feature surrounded by lush, northwest planting. A horizontal board cedar fence provides privacy from the street and creates the cozy feeling of an outdoor room among the trees. LED low-voltage lighting by Kichler Lighting adds night-time warmth .

What Houzz contributors are saying:
You have a choice as to the thickness of the boards and whether or not you want to leave gaps between them. No gaps gives most privacy, but being able to peek through the fence and see some of the garden beyond can be nice. Consider referencing your home’s siding with the lumber width or slat spacing.
