rio-del-mar-patio-350The Rio Del Mar Patio used colorful glass and different colored acid stains to produce a conceptual dry creek that meandered through the front patio. The dry creek continues through the faces of the stairs and terminates at the wooden deck.

At the center of the Sage colored wall is a slot for water to trickle into a small retention pond filled with large black Mexican pebbles and water hyacinth. The patio is also flanked by crisp angled back seat walls stained with amber color.
