Landscaping patio/entry dilemma

October 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello! We have a design dilemma. A deck off our front entry is about 6" below the grade of our entry way, not exactly the plan, but I am trying to turn it into an opportunity for something interesting. My husband and I differ on how we would make the entry and deck transition. He is more concerned about safety, I am more concerned about the flow. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Thank you HERE. We came to a similar conclusion, it is now down to the details. Your suggestion is a good confirmation we may be headed in the right direction.

6" is the perfect elevation for a step. If you add a 1-3/8" veneer stone over the concrete you can create a very nice look, with some low voltage LED lighting. Those irregular stones with be hard to set.

Thank you VizX! Interesting ideas. I had steps in mind for an easier visual transition; my husband who is more conscious of the safety of visitors was thinking of a mini wall/bench. Thanks for the photo, it is similar to our situation in the sense they have the different levels near the entry, though we have nowhere near the amount of space. Some great food for thought!
