I thought it had said drunken seating areas! Aw, I guess I have nothing to say now.

Here is a beautiful design idea; images from a project in Newport Beach, CA. Our company supplied the natural stone materials and assisted with installation and design, using two gorgeous natural stones; French limestone and Santa Barbara Sandstone.

Lovely examples of sunken outdoor living. There should always be at least one safe way to get "in and out" of those clean sunken seating areas. This can be tastefully designed in. You don't have to be old to need that. As an active tennis player I recently had knee surgery and understand that having access is critical.
