This very small backyard on a canal consisted of a small concrete pad and a patch of struggling lawn. The owners wanted a more useable outdoor space in which to enjoy the canal and a place for their two young children to play safely.

Stacked stone seat walls enclose the patio. A stone fire pit can be covered to double as a low table when not in use. A new arbor provides a shaded dining area.
