Circular patios, free-form, geometric, seat walls, paving materials, steps, and so on...it's all there for you to see and use for your own project. Working with many clients over my 13 years in landscape architecture and design, I have come to know what some of the challenges are. You might be facing the same things, such as...

· What paving materials should I use?
· How do I work out steps if necessay?
· What can I do to make it have that "wow" factor?

Editorial Reviews

Gen Schmidt
I think the Patio Plans ebook is wonderful - the content would be exceptionally helpful not only for homeowners, but for other designers. The content itself is stellar, and would be of great value for anyone designing a patio .

I love the way you present your ideas in Sketchup (3D). They're very easy to envision and even homeowners would be able to understand your designs easily, which is hard to do sometimes from a written plan. I love the innovation that was used.

Susan’s expertise speaks through in this book – obviously, her experience in putting together plans and plants for other people is a journey that has taught the most important thing about landscaping – comfort. Homeowners need to feel that their landscape is their own, even if someone else has designed it for them.
Dennis Gourly
I was looking for a plan incorporating a pergola, or patio cover, into the design and found just what I was looking for. Downloading and reading the book was the easy part, now it’s time to get out into the yard and get to work.

My yard will be a do-it-yourself project, between the detailed CAD drawing and the 3D illustration, following the design will be no problem.
