Creating an Outdoor Room

This week we started work on a new patio for Jane and Dennis.  They wanted a patio along the side of their home – right off of their family room which will give them additional living space outside and a great place for entertaining.

Day 1.     This site provided a few challenges as there was a huge old stump that we needed to bring in a small backhoe and have the stump dug out.  Then there was a slight slope to the surrounding area which necessitated in quite a bit of excavation.

The pictures show the area with some of the excavation done.  Jim Westlund our landscape division manager and Todd Marnie answer some of the questions the homeowner, Jane, has.
