WATER FEATURE ENHANCES A NEW PATIO

   

Maine patio landscaping

The goal of this client was to create an outdoor entertainment area. The design started with a patio only; however, the design process developed to include a boulder retaining wall and a water feature.

Proposed area for patio

Before construction the rear yard was sloped and uninviting.

Patio with adjacent water feature

After design, a patio and water feature created a beautiful outdoor living space.

The above photos show the before and after for this project. The design process helped the client to expand the initial idea of a patio into a larger patio to accommodate a seating area around a portable fire pit and also to include a boulder retaining wall and a pondless waterfall shown below.
