Back Yard Patio Challenge


We were recently asked to replicate a patio our client found a picture of in a magazine.It was a bit of a challenge due to the small space and slope of the back yard. We had to build a retaining wall get the level area for the patio. They also wanted a seating wall with columns to accent the area.
