Fitz’s Landscaping LLC Putting Together a Step-up Backyard Patio with Concord Wall Foundations
Because of the slope of this Yorktown Heights, NY, backyard, Fitz’s Landscaping LLC has chosen to include a platform built using Concord Wall from Unilock. The Concord Wall foundation essentially serves as a retaining wall in which the open graded base and bedding is contained. The matching Almond Grove Concord Wall Coping serves double duty as both a finish to the wall and border for the patio pavers which are still to be laid. Concord Wall is a heavy duty, high load-bearing wall product that is ideal for this sort of application. It also features tapered units for flexibility of style and shape, as well as a built-in set back design to automatically form the correct slope.
On the far end of the patio, Brussels Dimensional System has been used as an extension of the Concord Wall foundation walls. This low wall serves to provide privacy, as well as safety, for guests making use of the patio. As ends to the wall, Brussels Dimensional System pillars have been built. These will serve as handy platforms on which outdoor lighting features can be fitted, or food or drinks can be placed while entertaining.
With this project, Fitz’s Landscaping has demonstrated how heavy duty retaining wall units can be used to increase the usable surface area of a plot, extend outdoor living space, and build patios that offer a raised vantage point of a backyard.
The completed project is shown here featuring a Brussels Dimensional System fire pit and attractive lighting embedded beneath the ledge of the back wall coping.
