This modern paver patio design is complete with all of the necessities required for poolside entertaining! With a streamlined layout to optimize the pool space and linear features guiding the design, this piece of patio heaven in Indianapolis is ready for many days outdoors with family and friends.
When the pandemic hit, our company wanted to find a way to give back to the First Responders who had no choice but to remain on the front lines of public service throughout the crisis. Working with and giving back to the community is a value Property Pros holds at the core of its mission. Helping to provide one First Responder and her family with an updated backyard to transform their outdoor lifestyle is one small step we took to show our gratitude.
Transforming the Space
Designer Jeff Mull utilized the space strategically, crafting stairs from the back door to the patio that allowed the transition of elevation compactly, without taking space away from the pool area. Instead of extending straight out from the backdoor, two stairs-cases protrude parallel to the house, extending from a landing at the backdoor. Property Pros has a great network of industry experts we reach out to for help, and for this project, we were excited to work with a local Indianapolis company, Pools of Fun, for the first time.
A favorite detail of Jeff’s is the extended retaining wall around the fire pit. The retaining wall here is higher than the pool level wall and acts as a seating area around the fire pit. While structurally it didn’t need to make one last turn and extend out towards the edge of the yard, he feels the additional corner provides a clean finish to the entire area.
Throughout the project, the clients were great, remaining active in decision-making as the project progressed and preventing anything from having to be reworked later on. The Property Pros crew were ecstatic about how the yard turned out and are hoping the client’s high-school-aged kids will enjoy plenty of backyard hangouts with friends and family as the warm season draws near!

The crew working the job discovered a sinkhole about 3 feet down into the ground as construction started. Petrified logs, limbs, and debris from a previous builder were buried during construction and forgotten about as the area was leveled over time. The team excavated the area of the rock-like debris and utilized #2 stone gravel to fill and support the area, preventing the new paver patio retaining walls from collapsing.
