Yes thank you. I finally found the "more info" link. It's more obvious on the computer than on the phone. This house is in Nutley, NJ.

Do you have more photos of this beautiful patio? Are the stone walls retaining or just cosmetic?

the Walls are all dry laid stone. They are retaining the grade for the patio that sit behind it. There is a planting bed and drainage system between the wall and patio to manage water during storms and abate any surcharge from the raised grade.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Give structure to a wide expanse of lawn. Use a gently curving, low stone wall to set the patio area apart from the rest of the yard. For more privacy, add flowers like these black-eyed Susans and small trees on the patio side of the stone wall.
This larger patio space is lightly enclosed and screened by a soft planting of shrubs and perennials. (Ornamental grasses would have worked well here, too.) This strategically placed garden provides a second, and more immediate, layer of privacy in conjunction with the yard's perimeter plantings. This layering technique is a great way to jump-start your privacy plan if you're just starting to develop your landscape.
June Scott Design added this to Upgrade Your Front Yard for Curb Appeal and More
Project: Redo the front yard.Why: Your landscape is one of the first things you, a visitor or a prospective buyer sees when arriving at your house. Renovating the front yard can renew your pride in your home, increase its value and, if desired, lower landscape maintenance costs.

This wall helps break up an otherwise ugly and boring big expanse of lawn in front of our house. Love this look. Elevated seating area above lawn but still on hardscape.
