We were tasked with converting a struggling lawn area into a hardscape patio. We constructed a 12″ retaining wall on the low side of the patio, then installed a 280 s.f. dry lay flagstone patio. The retaining wall was then faced with mixed stack fieldstone and the patio joints filled with polymeric sand. The end result is a lovely patio space that fits nicely into the existing setting. More decorative walls and plantings to come this Spring!
