East Olympia Raised Patio

This raised patio in East Olympia is a striking addition to the original concrete patio.

This Raised Patio Raises Eyebrows Too!

Chris and Katrina Groen had a beautiful concrete slab walkway and overhang installed around the rear perimeter of their home, connecting the existing porch to an outdoor hot tub. To complete their recreation area, they wanted to do something special and add a large, extended patio for sun and fun.

However, they had a problem. Becuase of the slope of the backyard, installing a larger patio would require a great deal of fill dirt to bring up the grade even with the existing patio, and that would leave a large, exposed edge showing. They wanted the patio extension to be level with the existing patio; a step down could have been a trip hazard.

To make things more complicaed, their existing slab was designed with a a wavy, uneven edge. This added character to the concrete, but it made adding an extension a lot more complicated.

We recommended building a raised paver patio. We accomplished this by framing in the new patio area with Basalite Encore retaining wall blocks and then backfilling the area to bring it up to grade with the concrete. We then installed the paver patio on top of the fill using Western Interlock Columbia Blend Slimline pavers in a muster K pattern.

As you can see in the gallery below, the uneven edge took quite a bit of skill to match. Every paver block we installed long this edge had to be precisely hand-cut to fit the profile of the concrete.

The end result was striking, as you can see in the gallery of photos below. The pavers and matching trim add depth and contrast to the deck and really bring out the uniqueness of the unusual concrete slab pattern.

At AJB Services, we like taking on complex projects like these because it allows us to stretch our imagination and put our skills to the test. We love to see the exited look on our client's faces when we are able to set the bar high and overdeliver on our work.
