Patio 911!

This project involved the challenge of expanding the patio area by a pool to create a more "usable" space. Pre-existing conditions did not utilize the area to it's fullest potential.

We decided to remove existing stone wall, push it back to the fence line and add a large brick paver patio inviting you to the area with a curved set of steps. A more intricate pattern was chosen for the pavers and 85% of the stones for the wall came from the excavated area.

Some of the challanges were getting the skid steer through the woods behind the chain link fence. Stock piling stones and sizing them correctly for the wall. Deciding how to incorporate stairs into the whole area. Not damaging or killing the mature Japanese Maple on the left hand side of photos, "whew!" (still alive today)

This entire project was designed "on the go" as we invisioned it by myself and my experienced mason.
