This was a personal project of ours. When we first moved into our home, the patio was… small! To say the least. Hardly any room for a grill or patio chairs, let alone entertaining! We decided to extend the patio further into the yard. First, we ripped up the existing garden bed and leveled the ground. We also dug a trench to put in a drainage pipe that would run underneath the extension and prevent pooling. Once the ground was leveled and drainage pipe installed, we started laying the new pavers and garden beds. We decided on installing a raised bed to the left of the stairs, and a floor level bed along the fence portion. Now that it’s all said and done, the new patio accommodates a chair set with a fire pit, a outdoor dining table, AND a grill! The perfect setting for entertaining.
