Curved steps, mix of wood and stone, lattice work
Tiers down from wood to concrete, mixed media
Stone wall incorporated as patio, off center cement "pads" for walk way
Tier down to brick patio
Rounded tiered platform steps, keeping higher deck all on one plane
Broad steps down from door, stepping down to slate patio. A good option to a traditional deck.
Three-sided bench area on lower tier
Built-in square planter, integrated into higher grade
Tiered square platforms
Angled benches and built-in planter
Mix of concrete walls with wood, with planting areas incorporated
Angled deck, contemporary "lattice" wall (maybe use this approach to hide air conditioning and other mechanicals).
Angled boards and how step down from door is incorporated into bench, as we're planning on doing.
Angled stone deck area down to angled wood deck area. Nice and clean. Consider same approach out of our sliding glass doors off kitchen? Then stop down to wood or composite deck????
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the clean tiered down corners. Nice simplicity without rails.
Broad steps incorporated into deck, with one area with higher grade guarded by simple cable railing.
LOVE this rail, if we have to have railing
Potential approach for music jamming area, step down from wood deck into stone area with surrounded benches.
Slate patio with contemporary bench around with. Bench is open on bottom and "planted" or built into the ground instead of the patio/deck area, so feet fall onto patio.
Curved Bench out of Composite Board
Wow. Composite board CAN look contemporary and cool. Really like the simple, off-center tiers that step down. Also the mix with stones orpea gravel.
Short stone retaining wall for tier
