This was a great opportunity to do some really nice work. This project had a number of objectives that I think were met quite elegantly.
First was a formalized entrance built to compliment the historic Berkeley house and neighborhood. Second, to rebuild and redesign a failing fence. Lastly, to provide concealment for the trash cans from both the street and the house. The bench was thrown in for fun.
In honor of the traditional Arts and Crafts style the massive entrance was all joined with mortise and tenon and made of Redwood.
Here, you can see the last section of fence opens to roll the trash cans to the street for pick up.
The fence was carefully laid out around existing landscaping.
A matching arbor built on another location on the same property.
