It's a super trellis.

An overscaled grid made with 4-by-6s, 6-by-8s, and 6-by-10s covers Jane and Ken Anderson's patio in Pacific Palisades, California. Most trellises use smaller timbers, but the massive proportions employed here have a quiet harmony.

Because of their size, the beams can span longer distances than comparably deep but thinner boards. As a result, the patio looks uncluttered: only three 6-by-6 posts support the outer edge of the 38-foot-long structure. (A 4-by-6 ledger, lag-screwed to the house, holds the other edge.)

Landscpae designer was Nick Williams of Calabasas, California.
