Inspired by some photos last year, I took some salvaged beams and beach sand to make a patio space in a little used spot at the beach. I wanted a place for Adirondack chairs to read and relax out of the wind. The project sat dormant over the winter but with warm and sunny weather I was able to mow the lawn, paint the beams and set the concrete steps. Now I need to finish the back fill of the patio structure with pea gravel and set the steps. Still pondering what to plant or whether to build a feature wall for privacy.
