Our clients came to us with a need for more usable back yard space. They had plenty of lawn but no real place to sit out and relax. We removed a portion of the old lawn and installed about 350 square feet of paver patio. We used a Belgard Mega Lafitt Rustic Slab in a three piece pattern. To accentuate the curve in the patio we used a Catalina Slate paver border. Because of the grade of the backyard a portion of the patio is elevated so we installed dark basalt boulders to help retain the outer edge of the patio. To help with the transition from the lawn to the patio we cut a huckleberry basalt riser step into the edge of the patio. To further help with retention we planted sedum succulents in between the boulders. After we completed the patio our clients had a new deck installed by West Coast Decks.
