Can you believe this backyard is only 9′ deep? The transformation was incredible. The poly gal fence conceals the once over bearing AC units.

These planters were built for the “Mr Chow” restaurant that is at the new W Hotel in Miami Florida. We used Corten steel and added heavy duty casters so they could be rolled in during the severe weather. This is what 5000 lbs of steel looks like.

We love this house. If you look at our “landscape” and “Doors” section you’ll see the rest of it. The “Coolest Screen Door Ever” resides here. This gate was powdercoated silver and built to last out of 10 ga 2″x3″ tubing. The panels are frosted acrylic.

We designed this latch, because frankly there just aren’t any cool off the shelf latches out there. This stainless latch automatically latches when shut. It rides on internal bronze bushings and is spring loaded.

We worked with a local Austinite who wanted to transform his lot into an organic farm with 4′x4′ square foot garden table. So we built 56 of them. It was a lot of work, but it turned out real cool.

This automated driveway gate was a calaboration with the client. She came over and drew the gate on several pieces of steel and we cut it out. We actually welded a bead on the entire edge of the tree to give it depth. The branches were banded with hand hammered steel flat bar. The entire gate was was left natural to patina and the branches were hand painted by the home owner.
