Every so often as a designer you are given the opportunity to have complete artistic freedom. In this instance, I needed to come up with a creative way to pave and plant around these massive boulders. Each circle represents ripples as if the rocks were being tossed into a pond. The inside of each circle is planted with ornamental grasses to help illustrate a splash.

This contemporary patio space was
drafted with the goal of a making a small space feel as large as possible. I accomplished this by lifting the garden beds off the ground and placing a bench in the between which adds a second layer of depth to the small patio.
This project was focused on creating multiple patio destinations around the perimiter of the clients back yard. We decided to use a mix of concrete pavers for the patios and natural bluestone flagstone for the transitions. A seat wall was used as a visual tool to vertically highlight one of the patios from the house, thus drawing ones attention out past the lawn and giving the garden depth and a more welcoming feel.
