It all starts with a plan, and this was mostly an idea as many of our projects are. There were no formal plans to build from, So we sketched a little something on paper to give an idea of how the water would drain and the general layout of stairs needed and then we started to construct.

The backyard was by most accounts a bowl and not appealing to sit there and enjoy the summer. Grass would not grow and only select plants so we decided a large patio surrounded by planters around it would be low maintenance and functional yard as well as making the back very inviting for the homeowners and any guests.

We opted to make the retaining and borders a light wash architectural concrete finish and interior parts stamped concrete with multi colors. You will see in detail how we had achieved the multi colored custom cut and grouted stamp concrete on a different analysis of stamp concrete. See the page on Creating custom stamped concrete.

Different angles are grouped together to show the huge transformation of the yard from different angles and perspectives.

This angle is taken looking from the South East corner it shows the massive change. This is the lowest part of the concrete patio and all water drains to a washed rock area here.

Many of the retaining are at a comfortable height, finish and width so that guests can sit around and perimeter an mingle. There is 120 ft of concrete wall for 1500ft2 of planters.

There were 7 dump truck loads Of material taken out of this backyard through the tiny gate. It is in these circumstances small machines are a huge asset, we have a range of different size machines to make jobs like this efficient and more affordable.
