Blue Waters


This two-tiered space offers lower level seating near the swimming pool and upper level seating for a view of the Illinois River. Planter boxes with annuals, perennials and container plantings warm the space. The retaining walls add additional seating space and a small grill enclosure is tucked away in the corner.

The posts are 6"x6" rough sawn cedar. The stone pillars are 22" square and also 22" tall, plus the height of the pillar cap. The pillar cap is 24" square and is 3" thick, making the total pillar height 25". You can comfortably be up to about 32" tall with the pillar based on your personal tastes. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!!

Thanks for inquiring. The walls and pillars are Unilock Olde Quarry and the color is River. The patio is Unilock Brussels Block and the color is a sandstone/limestone mix. The wall coping is Unilock Ledgestone, and the color is gray.

This one is very similar to our design, but in this case, I think the spacing between the top row of 2x2 is too big. If this spacing is 24" apart, I think maybe 75%, or 18", would look good. What do you think?
