From drab to dramatic

A new front entrance is almost a terrace with a paving stone patio, fire table and retaining seat wall.

This Maplewood homeowner's front entry went from drab to dramatic with the addition of a ground-level patio using Willow Creek Cobblestone paving stones, a VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems seat wall and a matching single course of pavers as a tidy garden border. With overgrown plants in the front and the space virtually unusable, the home owners wanted a living space with plenty of room for outdoor furnishings such as the movable fire table or a table and chairs. The perimeter seat wall gives the area a cozy "front porch" ambience.

Now this homeowner enjoys a private outdoor retreat in which to cook and dine or just be lazy.
