The owners of Graczyk Lawn & Landscape enjoy living on their patio and deck nearly year-round, so when they speak with customers at their multi-faceted business in Kearney, they have the experience to back it up. “I love having coffee on the deck,” Kristen said about the elevated and roofed east-facing deck on their home on a slope northwest of Elm Creek. The deck offers shady relief on hot summer days and a panoramic view of the patchwork of pastures, cornfields and farm homes in the valley below. As he slides a pizza into the wood-fired brick oven on the patio below the deck, Josh said he just plain enjoys being outdoors on the Graczyks’ spacious patio.
