Greg and Julie Jones were looking for a unique solution for their patio. They wanted to keep the existing concrete, but install a sunken hot tub and a fire pit area. Major concerns were meshing the design with the existing space and providing some shaded area. The concept they chose features a raised fire pit patio with bullnose steps and seat wall for roasting marshmallows and relaxing. A hot tub patio was sited close to the master bedroom door. A planting update improved privacy and color.
