With an expansive view of the open space behind their home, the owners were seeking to make better use of their generous back yard and increase the entertaining capacity. The original aggragate patio was too small and unusually tall walls felt very restrictive while sitting in the space. JMR designed and installled spacious terraced patios, a custom fireplace, barbecue grilling area and long low seat walls for plenty of additional seating for family and friends. Great care was taken to preserve the Honeylocust trees while under construction. Not only do they provide cool shade in hot summer months but also a sense of enlosure or coziness.
