Wood Garden Enclosures, Privacy Screening & More

Looking for a beautiful pool equipment enclosure, wood bench, or other garden accessory? I design and build a variety of custom garden accents and structures which match your existing structures and compliment the unique style of your home and garden.

I focus on building structures that are not only beautiful, but excellent value for the money and built to last. The right craftsmanship, building techniques and materials make all the difference in whether your wood enclosure or bench will last 5, 10 or 15 years.

That is one of the reasons why I do all the work myself, so I can control the quality of construction and you don't have to deal with crews of workmen you have never met. My clients also hate having construction start and stop and stretch out for weeks, so I build for one homeowner at a time and stay on your project until it is done - usually completing most projects in one to two weeks. And I love to help you transform your home and garden by solving design and building challenges.

Below is my portfolio of work, as well as my pricing and a detailed pavilion design guide with related links.

 

Portfolio of Garden Enclosures, Privacy Screening & Accessories

My online portfolio features photos of my equipment enclosures, benches, garden accessories and pavilions so you can get an idea of what I can build. To see more details about a project, just click on a photo.

As a first step, I recommend that you look at lots of different projects to discover what you do and don't like. You can mix and match design ideas and functionality to create the perfect design. So take a look at the photos below and online. If you see what you want (or something close), we can use that as a starting point for a client inspired design. Or I can create a custom design that matches your existing garden structures. For even more design ideas, check out the resources below.

When you are ready to get started, contact me and we can set up an appointment to tour your location, discuss design options and establish a budget, so I can give you a detailed estimate.

Prices For Custom Enclosures & Accessories

There are three price ranges for custom garden furniture: basic pre-made, custom, and high end pre-made .

  • Basic pre-made furniture is what you see for sale at popular home and garden stores. For an idea of the prices, visit one of them or go online.

  • At the custom level, the price matches or exceeds the cost of high end pre-mades in order to cover the cost of designing and building to meet your specific needs. A unique design can offer additional functionality, meet custom size requirements, incorporate special materials, be an exact replacement, or become part of an existing structure (such as a handrail).

  • High end pre-made garden furniture is sold by fine garden furniture makers, such as Smith & Hawken, who charge 150% - 400% above the basic prices. These costs reflect higher quality materials and craftsmanship, more complex or stylish designs, and fine finish details.
