2. Walls. The sides of sunken seating areas act as mini retaining walls to hold back the surrounding soil, so it’s best to work with a skilled landscape contractor to make sure that the walls are properly installed. Here, Moss used concrete masonry units (CMU), reinforced with rebar inside the blocks, anchored into a concrete foundation to make four very sturdy retaining walls. He also sealed the outside of the walls with a waterproofing agent to prevent moisture from leaking through them, which could cause cracking down the line.3. Seating. Digging down creates the opportunity for adding built-in seating. If this is a priority, design your sunken patio to accommodate comfortable seat heights and depths and angles for backrests. Benches should be about 18 inches off the ground; seats should be at least 20 inches deep or closer to 24 to 26 inches to leave room for back cushions.For this sunken fire pit area, Moss created the seats from 12-by-12-inch reclaimed crane mats (used to stabilize cranes during construction). The seats are 24 inches deep, which, Moss points out, makes them wide enough to be comfortable to lie down on as well as sit on. The seats are 18 inches off the ground.
