Stuart and Cathy Malone are retirees, but they haven’t retired their passion for the outdoors. They purchased a vacation property in the South Carolina Lowcountry where they could enjoy maritime forests and spectacular coastal views. They also wanted a casual living environment they could enjoy year-round.
As a landscape designer, Cathy has masterminded dozens of decks for her clients and weighed the pros and cons of every decking product on the market. When it came time to update her own deck, she wanted a material that would give her a beautiful outdoor environment without requiring constant maintenance.
The Kaufmanns wanted to convert a steep, graveled surface behind their house into a top-of-the-line outdoor living space where they could entertain guests year-round. The homeowners also wanted a high-end deck that looked like an extension of their indoor living environment.
