Recessed And Sunken Patio Design Idea

Generally, a recessed or sunken patio is created because of specific property challenges such as slope or space. A good example is one that we created at sunken backyard patio, is an old swimming pool that nobody was using in a cramped small backyard. Even though it's a rare example, it made usable space out of wasted space.

Even placed into the side of a hill with open sides, this design is considered recessed or sunken into the ground. If challenged with a slope or hillside, a patio design like this would be a good consideration.

As with all landscaping, and especially in a recessed or terraced piece of land, drainage is a main consideration in your landscape designs. It's one of those underlying elements in a design that isn't seen. Proper drainage for patios and courtyards and especially in a garden like this sunken patio design is not something that you want to think of as an after thought when the area is flooded or washed away.
