Different shapes
of stone used in this large patio area, breaks up the space and softens the transition to  garden beds.



An outdoor fireplace and solid stone walls make this patio a warm and private space for lounging, even during the crisp evenings of autumn.




A formal front
entrance and patio.


   A small patio is the destination for this "river" of stone and creates a sense of order for the simple but bold planting.


A small patio is the destination for this "river".  Curves in the river of stone imitates the naturalness of a river bend, to create an equally natural feeling setting for a simple but bold planting.  A stone bridge completes the illusion.


 Backyard Poolside Decks


A wide open wooden deck was brought well out from the house and lowered closer to ground level, to blend with the surrounding grounds, and existing swimming pool.




 Rich shrub and perennial planting to keep the poolside interesting.





A deep sloped garden bed marries the deck, pool, and house with a rich planting that
offers flowers and changing colours year round.






  Phase one.   

Phase two.

A year or two later, when budget was replenished, a boxwood hedge and shrub planting completed this backyard remake.  



Using flagstone instead of angular stone helps
this large patio area
stay in keeping with the natural setting.
