The back patio is larger at 17′ deep x 25′ wide, with three entrance points to the garden.
The patio/deck was built by American Dream Decks. Their prices were reasonable, and they had solutions to any problem we encountered.
Outstanding items include
1. Raised beds around patio for roses.
2. Flagstone in front of stair entry
3. Lighting near stairs
