Inviting Patio


This home had undergone extensive foundation repair, which in turn dislodged the patio steps and left the original patio cracked. Over time, and during the soil disruption from the foundation repair, the original retaining wall surrounding the patio had also settled.

The goal of this project was to provide a safe outdoor living space that retained the grade and provided an inviting space for family to gather. The new patio was installed with Bristol Valley® pavers in Copper Ridge with an accent of Copthorne® in Burnt Clay and Old Oak. Surrounding the patio is a retaining wall utilizing Highland Stone® Freestanding Wall block in Sandstone with Ledgestone™ coping buff wall caps. The newly installed walkway from the back door to the garage used the same pavers as the patio for a cohesive look.

To complete the space, a low maintenance planting bed was placed around the patio, edged in a Tumbled Granite Edger™ in Sante Fe and planted with ‘Pee Wee’ hydrangea, boxwood, hosta, coral bells and carex.
