SLIDE 48: Patio as Resource

Finally, we knew that the patio that the client wanted to create was located in a depression (near center of slide above yellow tree) that they had dug previous to our arrival on site. In addition to reshaping this relatively protected outdoor space, we added a drain and a pipe designed to divert stormwater (not only from the patio but from the garden beds and pathway that will pour water onto the patio in a large rain event) to a daylight point and swale near the windbreak. This provides a third source of water harvested from the site for the all important windbreak.
