A sizeable patio was built for entertaining and everyday use, as was a perched beach to provide an intimate setting close to the shoreline. Seating stones were placed at the patio’s edge to create an area for a portable firepit. Other areas of the patio were established for dining, lounging, and yoga.
Plants chosen for this project serve multiple purposes. Some of the shrubs, perennials and groundcovers used provide screening, while others provide color and fragrance. All of them serve as a form of erosion control. Their root systems intertwine to anchor the soil along the slope.
