The client wanted to expand her entertaining space. This space previously featured an eroding hill with no good way to reach the lower lawn. We installed the stone steps and dry creek bed to deal with functional issues. A major point of interest is the creek bed as it winds underneath a stone slab landing in the stairway. The client then added the lower stone patio to the scope of work. As a result, this previously unusable space became a garden in its own rite, teeming with ferns, carex and native shrubs.
