Graceful entertaining is now the focus in this backyard in San Anselmo. Dan Fix Landscape Construction completed the architect's vision of complete outdoor cooking and dining curving concrete counters inlaid with tumbled glass squares.
Custom concrete work supports a stainless steel barbeque, new plumbing supplies a curved porcelain sink with brushed chrome faucets and electrical service keeps the refrigerators running.
Because the cool ocean air reaches San Anselmo on summer evenings, there is a free-standing fireplace to warm the surroundings with the flickering light of the gas logs. DFLC expanded the natural gas service to the residence and ran the lines to the back yard.
Electrical and water lines were also run to the free-standing spa on a platform flanked by short columns and sheathed in natural stone. The curved concrete patio echos the lines of the inlaid counter and curves around the lawn surrounding the children's play area.
