We completed this project for a retired client in 2015. Our client required a low maintenance solution while having a small area to garden. The raised beds were constructed to avoid bending while gardening. They also function as benches and are finished with pieces of granite that are normally used for steps.
The gold granite bench is repeated in the patio with a strip of silver granite to mark the transition between the horizontal and vertical plane. A small dining set for two is all that will be required in this garden and the patio size reflects that. In this garden synthetic grass is a cost effective way of covering the existing concrete.
