Faux sunken patio in Seattle, Washington

Faux Sunken Patio

Compensating for a grade change, a small wall needed to be built surrounding half the patio, leaving the impression that the patio is sunken into the ground.

Patios, Pathways, Driveways & Stairs

Patios and Pathways can be installed to provide a variety of uses, and can be done with a wide variety of materials to suit both aesthetic and utilitarian purposes. Both concrete pavers and natural stone can be used to create formal or informal spaces for you to enjoy. When installed properly patios and paths can provide a lifetime of enjoyment and functionality.

Pavers have many different color combinations and styles to choose from to provide you with the look and function that you desire. There are also different patterns and textures that add an extra element to your project.
Natural stone is also available in many different colors and can be installed to have a formal or more natural look. Stone is available that has been cut and smoothed, or it is available in its raw form.

Lighting can be added for night time enjoyment and safety. It can also be added to highlight certain areas of your landscape for aesthetic purposes.

Depending on the placement of your patio or path, there are some additional costs that may need to be considered. Small retaining walls and/or drainage may need to be installed to keep your patio from failing if it is to be installed on a slope. You may also need to incorporate steps for easier access to the patio. Walls and drainage may also be needed to prevent excess water from running onto your patio. These things are all situational and should be considered as you plan your budget for the project.
