This project had many design issues; there was no open lawn area, a large hill side with was not plantable and no terrace area for friends and family to hangout. The issue of no useable backyard was fixed by pushing the earth back about 20′ and creating a lawn area with the use of retaining walls. With the change in grade we were able to create terraces at different levels. The lower level consists of a BBQ area and tables for relaxing. So they now have 3 terraces and an area around the pool for sunning. Plus the homeowners can now see the children anywhere in the backyard.
