"Your idea of breaking up the mid and lower patio with a planting bed was spot on. It's actually one of my favorite areas. It probably goes without saying, the pond is spectacular."- Mr. & Mrs. Y
More patios, walls & steps, etc.
You can choose from a wide variety of flat stone paving or flagstone.
We most often use Montana slate, but also work frequently with flat granite, Wilkinson stone, tumbled slate, and a host of other types.
Usually set in a crushed rock base covered with compacted sand, the stone can also be mortared, custom cut, and fit against other styles of paving for a more eccentric look.
We do a lot of patios. Keep in mind that you may need a slightly bigger space than you think to set a four-person table where you can still move your chair back without stepping onto the adjacent lawn or bed area.
First you determine the shape and then you choose the materials. We'll give you a catalog showing stone selections as well as other types of paving to help you choose. You can also visit our sample library in Redmond for more information.
Add pots and a few Adirondack chairs and...well, suffice it to say that we have to look at the size carefully.
- Rock Steps
These simple rock steps, made up of fitted small boulders, are one of the longest-lasting and most cost-effective ways to make steps. We can also make them from flagstone and other types of rock.
