This client had some large hardwoods come down during a storm. Once they were removed, he had a great deal of erosion. The mud and steepness of the slope made getting down to the lake difficult. He also wanted a patio where he could watch the sunset off the lake. We revamped his side yard and added a series of retaining walls, plants and steps. A patio was built into the hillside large enough for entertaining and seeing the view.
