We need to replace our fieldstone wall (currently 18" high and runs the width of the backyard) and want to build patio in the section of our backyard nearest to the house. We would also like to have a fireplace built and possibly a cooking/prep area if suitable. The area is currently mostly grass and mature bushes and flowers. We have space in the rear of the yard to transplant if necessary. We want the space to make our outdoor living area more accommodating.
We have a colonial house built in 1928, located in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. We would like the wall and patio to keep in style with the home. We would also like to maintain privacy on the sides (neighbors).
