Before & After: ModFruGal’s Deck

Being forced to replace the siding by a complete infestation of critters that no amount of patching could dispatch, the new black metal siding really goes along way towards sprucing up the outside of the house.   My Ben Moore guy guy has talked me out of painting my house black on a number of occasions….(it is currently v/ dark brown) — he says that it is too hard on the materials (extreme heat) — so I am intrigued by the metal siding option….perhaps this is more efficient and tough?

The wrap around deck and small retaining wall really adds to the house.   All the furniture is all ebay, craigslist, dumpster diving, hand-me down finds….and I think they look perfect….don’t you?

You will have to forgive her for not getting the deck stained….she is in Nashville and the rain…the rain…well you might have heard about it.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I love this before and after! I can’t wait till we can furnish our deck next spring….I’ve been scouring craigslist but haven’t found what I’m looking for yet.
