Two great outdoor living areas blend into one great multi-use space in Shawnee KS

hardscape patio retaining wall pergola Shawnee KSWhen this Shawnee KS family bought their new home, it come with a standard square concrete patio in the back yard. While most of these concrete patios are not very attractive, the builders often add these to new homes just to say the home comes with a patio. This family wanted a larger and more attractive area with shade and also with a custom design. They wanted the new space to fit their lifestyle as well as their aesthetic needs.

The hardscape is built with Belgard pavers. It includes a beautiful round retaining wall and pillars. The pergola sits on pillars that match the patio pillars. The paver stones and cedar pergola are a perfect compliment to each other. The cedar pergola is a large square pergola. Pergolas enhance aesthetic appeal but they also provide a degree of sun and rain protection.

The paver patio is roomy enough to allow for 2 distinct living areas. These combination projects are very popular because they allow the outdoor space to be multi use. Often our customers will use one part of the space for eating and other for seating. Some customers combine a patio with a deck or even with a screened porch.
