This small patio design and installation had a few simple parameters. The client did not want to take care of a lot of plants and did want to cut down on the noise from the street.
It was immediately obvious that the plants outside of the patio walls offered plenty of vegetation without using the planters inside the patio area. In the existing patio planters we installed a series of pots as part of a water feature that would drown out the sound of the nearby traffic. Underwater lights were placed to uplight the splashing water and animate the space in the evening. We added a custom size table and outdoor loveseats between the fountains to create a comfortable seating area.
