Enjoying Patio Spaces
Baby Proofing Montgomery helped a young family that moved into a townhouse in Reston, VA, optimize their outdoor space. The property backed up to the woods, had a wood-floor patio, and was not fenced in. A neighborhood walking path was the only thing separating the patio from the woods. This posed too many risks for a family with young children to make use of the patio. We customized the gating system to fit the space by using multiple 24” extensions, supported by T-bars to create secure posts, to close off the 14’ patio opening. Since the deck floor was wood, the gate’s T-bars were securely screwed to the floor. We also used a brown gate to match the wood patio.
