The backdoor was high in relation to ground level; our client desired a raised patio in lieu of a wooden deck. We accomplished this goal by constructing a multi level patio using retaining walls, steps and patio landings to get to door level. We constructed planter boxes containing beds with Knockout Roses and formal Boxwood shrubs, for easy trimming. The large upper patio area is perfect for dining and the lower patio level is a great space for fireside chats. The entire patio area was landscaped for privacy and lushness.
