For these homeowners we turned their standard patio into an outdoor extension of their living and dining rooms. A walking path leads guests through a landscaped side yard to a bricked-in outdoor grill. The patio is close by for easy access and covered with a custom pergola for a bit of shady respite from the sun. Water features add relaxing sounds to an already serene space. The brick patio was extended to accommodate extra seating and loungers. Heat and drought tolerant shade plants were added for easy maintenance in our Texas climate. This patio is entertaining ready!
