Prior to the deck and pergola addition, this Arlington, MA backyard provided very little privacy. The condition of the existing stairway was an eyesore and had also became a safety concern for the homeowners. The new deck, pergola and walkway dramatically transformed this backyard and how the homeowners feel about their backyard and their home.
The addition of the privacy deck changed the whole way these homeowners feel about their backyard and home. The custom privacy deck functions like an outdoor room the entire family can now enjoy.
Lattice panels serve as “windowed walls” designed to provide privacy but still deliver an open and airy feel. The overhead pergola filters the sun and mimics the feel of a roof.
A close-up view of the floating lattice panels shows how they define the space by adding privacy and maintaining an open feel.
The composite deck features convenient “under deck” storage disguised by attractive custom lattice panels.

Every aspect of this project is carefully detailed. This includes the workmanship evident on the stairs. Notice how the carefully cut treads and risers follow the profile of the fieldstone foundation.
