This residential patio design and installation created a functional space for relaxing outdoors and dining in the open air.  The project included the custom design and construction of raised beds from reclaimed pavers, privacy screening, and pervious ground cover.  Unique and native plantings, a functioning rain garden, and water retention systems have reduced the reliance on city water and introduced many new creatures to the garden. The garden is a highly functioning ecological system that is beautiful throughout the year.
