A West Islip patio makes a return after hurricane Sandy.
Because this entire Long Island backyard was completely destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, this landscape design project was a real challenge. The design had to begin with protection from the beautiful open water it faces. To help minimize and prevent future storm damage a cement wall was built underground and 2 feet above grade around the entire property. A custom gas fire pit sits near an elaborate natural boulder koi pond complete with a piece of driftwood deposited in the yard by Hurricane Sandy. A spacious outdoor kitchen sits on the opposite end of the property located perfectly as to not interfere with the flow of the entertaining areas. Lush plantings soften the entire design.
