haha yeah that may be it.......I just notice a lot more walls with manufactured materials vs masonry. A problem I have with it is that it can easily become over done and over bearing........just pour concrete at that point. Sorry, didn't meant to get off topic.

Computer rendered design. The design was changed slightly from this original layout, but here it is none the less.


A slight elevation change from left to right with a moderate change from front to back. In order to prevent from having to rebuild a flight of steps to match a level patio, we designed the patio into two main levels to accomodate the deck steps. Worked out quite well.


Not sure where the photos are of the initial dig. But here is what I was able to find. The pipe sticking out of the patio is a natural gas line we subcontracted to have installed for the grill. The other is a grade stake. Removed after pavers were installed.




Working on the steps and finishing the caps for the upper and lower walls.


Quality assurance inspector.


Apparently he found something of interest.


More of the same. Working on the steps


Installation of the upper level wall.


Wide look at project. The crews are finishing the steps, and beginning the prep work on the wall/walkway to the right which leads to the basement steps.


Things are starting to come together.


Work continues on the upper level, while tamping and finishing touches take place on the lower level.


QA at it again.


More of the same.


Installation begins of the natural gas grill. It was much easier to do this way then try and man handle this thing. The nice part was once we got it on the patio we found it had wheels so we were abel to roll it into place.

The walkway comes from the side of the garage, through the gate and into the patio. An additional walkway was to be added on the nearest corner leading to the right 15' to the side garage door entrance. Owner opted not to install this portion since they wanted to keep this section of lawn for the dog.


Gas guy, doing his thing. (QA officer noticed the upper wall was to be raised in order to hide the backside of the grill. This was an oversight on the foremans behalf, so necessary steps were taken to make the correction. The initial design called for a table top type grill to be placed on a surround wall. However, the customer liked this grill better, so the design was changed once this grill arrived.


Sod install begins

More complete pics

more of the same.


I particularly liked the lamps the customer picked out. In addition to what you dont see, we had our deck guy come in and install white lattice all around the deck to hide the underside. We also installed a nice color pocono river rick behind the patio wall just in front of the lattice. 3 Tons worth. Adds a nice no maintenance touch.
