Patio Design for Sloping Backyard in West Chester, OH
If you are one of the many homeowners that has a sloping backyard, but want a nice outdoor space to relax and unwind, this patio has some pretty cool ideas that may help you out.
Before I get carried away telling you about all the fun stuff, I want to get a little technical. Designing a patio for a slope is really no different than designing one for a flat yard. The only real difference, is the patio for a slope uses a retaining wall to make it level. So when calculating a budget for your patio, add some money for the cost of the wall.
Now for the fun stuff! This patio was a custom patio we designed for a customer in West Chester, OH. Fortunately for me, it was right down the road and I was able to whip down there, take a few photos and pull some measurements pretty quickly.
I met with the homeowner and his wife, who were super nice and awesome to work with, and they began to tell me what they wanted. A 400-500 square foot curvy patio with enough space for their existing table, a fire pit area and a grand set of entrance steps.
The homeowners were pretty specific about wanting to be wowed by the entrance steps and sent me several pictures of step ideas they liked. We slipped on our creative hat and designed this set of arced, stone steps using Allan Block Europa (tumbled) block.
We added a stone seating wall around the outdoor dining area using Allan Block Old Country Courtyard block. Perfect for additional seating and a protective barrier from accidentally falling off raised section of patio.
Here's a closer look at the fire pit area we designed. By using a portable fire pit instead of a built-in fire pit, this area can be used for other purposes.
