Define your entryway or patio with the dramatic effect of decorative steps. The visual impact and everyday use can be enhanced with the use of lights and architectural profiles. Creating a curved step with a cantilevered edge are just a few design elements in which steps can be seen as a decorating pleasure. Incorporate a matching seating wall as an element to accommodate function and focus. Walls and steps can also help when designing outdoor spaces for entertaining. To give the feeling of different rooms or spaces place steps and low retaining walls to create varying levels in the yard. Walls can also be used to surround and highlight a fireplace or water feature. When designing your next project redefine your area with altitude.
