That surface (floor) appears as if it may be sand.? If so, a solid subsurface and drainage boxes would convey water away. Think "sump."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The completely outdoor version of the conversation pit, complete with fire pit in the center!
Becky Harris added this to Forty DOs for Outdoor Furniture
DO plan your seating with your landscape architect. This concrete is able to serve as a retaining wall, a conversation pit edge, and a great place to seat when a few cushions are thrown on it.
This is such a versatile and geometric spot. It works with the modern grid and complements the house.
