In amongst the craziness of spring, I took the time to slide by a flagstone patio/ dry-stacked fieldstone wall/ planting job I designed last spring. I have to say, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out:
The “main room” of the patio is irregular (aka “broken”) flagstone with a border of granite cobbles. The rest of the field of the patio is random-laid rectangular flagstone.
We tied into the existing brick walkway through the woods. The wall replaced some old, decaying railroad ties that defined the birds’ garden.
I guess that highlights the big difference between landscape design and interior design: with an interior, some of your best shots are the day after the crews pull off the site. This landscape is still “too young for primetime” at a year old, but I’m still digging the final result. This project’s in Alexandria, Virginia, just a stone’s throw from Mount Vernon, so boxwood were a natural choice.
Anyhow, just thought I’d share. I know the posting’s been a little sparse, so I need to at least show a little of what I’ve been up to!
