What Houzz contributors are saying:
Inside the fence, the patio is outfitted like an extension of the home, with a steel-and-Sunbrella shade structure, porcelain floor tiles, luxe lounge furniture, subtle outdoor lighting and a water feature (which also helps muffle street noise).

Other features:Planting: Vines, including star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides, USDA zones 8 to 10; find your zone), climb up the wood fence; cable supports (called a green screen) will help the greenery fill in. The jasmine produces a sweet fragrance that the homeowners can enjoy when they’re sitting outside. Water feature: Custom made with a fiberglass basin and copper pipes; the team submerged a pump into the basin that they then filled with river rock. The sound of a running fountain always enhances the feeling of serenity, and this one also helps reduce the sounds coming from the street. Fencing: The Douglas fir fencing works to solve the sound and privacy problems; Krueger filled the double-sided wood fence with rigid insulation to reduce sound. Additionally, he spaced the slats at the top of the fence so that they let in light and allow the homeowners to look out at the street, but are high enough off the street that passersby can’t look in, without the fence’s looking like a fortress. This same Douglas fir was used for the house siding. Built-in seating: Ipe wood and custom cushionsOutdoor lighting: Outdoor lighting along the house, directional lights in the planting beds and uplights along the driveway are by Hinkley.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Look at how the wall next to neighbors is solid and other walls have staggered pieces on exterior and interior for privacy. Water feature reduces noise, tile as the groundcover, the lounge area has a firepit, seating, and lounges.
