A paver patio extends out into a rounded shape, with a round fire pit serving as a gathering spot. This fire pit is designed and built by Edward Andrews Homes behind a new home in its Lake Haven of Crabapple neighborhood in Milton, Ga.
Rolling pastures and picturesque lakes surround this contemporary ranch house, creating a quiet country setting just outside of Dallas. A paved driveway curves around the front of the home for easy access to the main entrance.
Stone Stairway Retaining Wall Leads from Upper Patio to Lower Patio
The homeowners were worried about the flow of rainwater on their property, so they wanted a retaining wall included in the design of their home's patio space that would divert water away from the home itself and down to Lake Minnetonka below. To accommodate this request, designers created a retaining wall from slabs of limestone that form a staircase leading from the upper patio area down to the lower pool and spa space. To add a little diversity to the design, limestone boulders were placed on the sides of the walkway, giving the feature a lovely aesthetic.
