The Problem: This patio project created some real challenges. Water was draining toward the center of the patio and pooling every time it rained. The standing water in the center was not only making it unusable for our clients, but it was also attracting mosquitos. Their tables and chairs wouldn’t even sit level on the old patio.
The Solution: The 12″ thick concrete pad had to be torn out so we could redo the grade. We then installed drainage ensuring all water drained away from the house and the patio. A new patio was designed with two pier kits to create columns for lighting, and we added accent lighting underneath the retaining wall cap.
