Tweed Drive, Franklin, Michigan
This beautiful Franklin home sits along a picturesque riverside. The designer was challenged to create a dining and entertaining area on a site made more difficult because of drainage problems and a constrained space. The older wood pergola was removed, instantly opening and brightening up the space. The patio area was enlarged to accommodate both comfortable outdoor dining and a fire pit near the water's edge. The failing retaining wall has been replaced with a terraced stone wall. Within the wall we incorporated a stairway for access, minimal landscaping for ease of maintenance, and tucked a few plants in crevices with the wall for heightened visual interest.
