COMPLETE MASONRY CONSTRUCTION

This may look like just a very nice raised patio that has some nice stone work and a nice railing.  However it is much more than that.  It is a patio that was originally a very unusable part of the owners yard.  It also has a storage room underneath.  John Lyndsay Mayer the landscape architect designed this contemporary terrace with switch back steps that lead to another patio at ground level.

First this required a large amount of excavation.  Then it required the foundations to be installed.  Then the room was built with concrete blocks after which a steel deck was installed for concrete to be poured over the top.  After that the stone work started.  The paving stone was put on pedestals which means the paving is level yet the water flows through the joints to a sloped concrete pad underneath then down a hidden drain.  This was not easy as it had to work around the lights and the railings.  Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc.  works very well with John Mayer.  He is a very involved landscape architect and has a strong desire to line up certain elements.  As you can see the landscape is a big part of this project as well.  The plantings almost seem bigger than life.  When taking on a project like this I would make sure to be very selective with the contractor that you choose
