Neighborhood Gathering In Aptos

This Aptos home is in a community that does (pre-COVID) large rotating backyard parties. To that end, this project aimed to maximize the space and create separate gathering spaces for big groups. The outdoor kitchen includes a BBQ, pizza oven and shelf for the Big Green Egg, all under a pre-fab arbor. We used Belgard's Mega-libre pavers for the patios, allowing for permeability and the look of natural stone. The Trex Composite deck is large enough to accommodate two separate seated groups, while the hot tub is tucked in a private corner and surrounded by plants and boulders to create a lush hideaway. Horizontal stainless steel and hogwire panels on the fencing and railing maintain the view of the verdant golf course adjacent to the back yard.
