This client had a problem. They were forced to take down a tree in their backyard but the stump couldn’t be taken out. It was too big to hack out and the walkway was too small to bring in a stump grinder. The client loved to garden and already possessed a beautifully manicured space so we discussed building a garden around and over the stump to get rid of their problem and give them one more space to garden with.
During the consult, I noticed a number of chairs sitting around the stump. The client informed me that they used this space to entertain guests, as it was the sunniest spot in their yard. When I built the design I included an interlock patio space as well as the planter which would give them a defined place to entertain as well as stones sunk into the ground as a walkway to connect the space with the existing landscaping.
Custom Interlocking was brought in to build the seating area based on my design. This worked out wonderfully as I was able to use my Project Management background to oversee the construction to ensure the customer’s satisfaction and complete a project that was outside of my skills set. A win-win for everyone.
