The homeowner had built an award winning brick walled courtyard in 1993. She later installed a stone outdoor fireplace in the backyard. (Dick Busch was the architect and Spencer Brickwork did both installations).
In 2009, the homeowner wanted to do away with her high maintenance wood deck and expand her outdoor entertaining area.
Dick Busch designed a beautiful brick, cut stone, and Turkish marble deck, along with stairs, walks, and an interestingly shaped patio, complete with an arched brick and stone gate entry to the pool, and four simple brick columns anchoring the corners of the pool deck.
Richards Brick was still making the standard size “Autumn Rose” brick, and it matched very closely.
Spencer Brickwork put all the components together, with the results not only adding value to the home, but tieing together brickwork and stonework that was done sixteen years earlier. The finished result is a beautiful, maintenance free statement of brick, stone, and Turkish marble.
Date of Project Completion: July 2009
