The Client had a very large backyard area yet it had a significant slope as it moved away from the home. They wished to have more usable space in the back yard and the only way to achieve this was to terrace the existing yard.
We constructed two retaining walls with steps to create an upper yard area, a middle “terrace” area and then the lower backyard area.
We constructed two sets of steps that were offset to each other to provide an easy means of traversing the steps and used colored gravel to blend the terraced areas into the rest of the landscaping that surrounded the home.
