The homeowners first contacted us to ask about building a patio for their home. During the site visit, the homeowners showed us the previous work that had been completed around the back of the house. Upon inspection, we identified a number of issues that needed to be addressed.
Issues To Correct
To solve the drainage problem, we re-designed the outdoor space that would give the family enough room move around comfortably, while also being visually appealing.
All of the old plantings, the patio, and walkways had to be removed. Once the old work was removed, we started building a retaining wall to support the side of the patio. This wall also allowed us to create the patio on one level, making the space much more usable. The retaining walls continue out of the ground to create a enclosure affect around the edge of the patio providing safety and more of an outdoor room feel.
Landscaping, Walkway, and Lighting
We incorporated some plantings to the inside of the walls to bring a little greenery into the patio space. Low-voltage lighting was installed in the walls and pillars to provide a comfortable light level for safety and beauty during evening hours. A wide walkway was the constructed to connect the patio to the driveway to create an easy access path to the patio. Landscape lights were also installed along the walkway.
In the end we were able to create a beautiful and functional outdoor space that added a lot of value to the home!

Yep that's right, you certainly want to consult a professional before spending time and money on a hardscapes. The cost of cheap is more expensive than doing it right the first time.
