The wood is so nice and new! It doesn't get direct sun and it's like ipe and teak, so it can get wet.
walking through the front gate, into my courtyard area.
The area below the blue wall is my koi pond.. That window is to my son's room. He has the bestroom in the house.When you open his window, you can hear the pond waterfall.
And here is what the pond looks like. don't really have any recent, decent shots of this pond. There are no more plants in the water because the koi rip them to shreds.
And here is the one we just finished in the backyard. This vertical wall is behind the waterfall feature to the koi pond. It hides the mechanical workings for the pond.
As usual, I had to finish and apply marine varnish to each board.
When the plants start to grow and trail, it will look really cool! I will hopefully plan on doing a new paint job on the stucco walls and the patio overhang. Will also make a new bridge out of the same redwood.
here was an older pic from years back. what an overgrown mess!! We had a bamboo screen to hide the above ground 50 gallon drum filters.
And, same view, 10 years ago after it was just built!! Holy greenery batman!
Hadn't yet put in the french doors to the left, or built the deck.
