    I looked at a job today. Part of the job is a 18 in tall raised patio. The patio will be a rectangle. Were going for a modern look and want it to match the shape of the pool. Any one have any pics of any they did? I am trying to think of some ideas to spruce it up.

    What are you thinking, planters? Long steps? Where is the pool going in relation to the house (how close)? Why is it 18" above the rest of the grade?

    I wasn't able to talk the homeowner out of a rectangular patio, but I still think it turned out alright. IMG_1345.jpg

    I am working on a design right now. I'll post it in a couple hours. I am going for a very formal look i'd say. All stright lines with 90 degree corners. No curves at all any where.

    oh well, this is curved, but it's about 18" I'd say

    What do you guys think about having the stairs go around the entire patio?
