Add outdoor living space to your home by expanding on an existing patio. These photos show how O’Donovan Landscaping helped a local Naperville homeowner create areas for a barbeque and additional seating, without disturbing the hardscape patio already in place. The finished product is designed to provide specific areas for cooking and dining while offering good flow and a relaxed living space.
BEFORE INSTALLATION –
Here is the existing patio. The homeowner wanted to add an area devoted to the barbeque (left), and to add a square area for seating on the opposite end of the house.

THE FINISHED PRODUCT –
The finished square addition adds seating, fully separate from the cooking area, in a design that complements the entire hardscape.
The finished barbeque adds a dedicated area for cooking that repeats the use of the existing knee wall.
