We did this small project in a West Asheville development called Craggy Park. There was a rather ramshackle looking set of steps and stepping stones in the front that we completely revamped.
This was relatively new construction, so there really wasn’t anything going on around back. There was a deck but it didn’t really have any relationship to the area or to how someone might want to use the space. We worked with Mardi Letson of Gardens by Mardi to redesign the space. We added a small patio and this step that leads into the house. The patio is natural edges, mostly fitted with hammer and chisel. The step contains crisper edges, shaped with a grinder.
