The client for the project mentioned in my previous post hates bluestone. Bluestone and brick are the standard for patios in this area and I’ve not run into anyone who hates it before. This client wants an antique look for his patio and garden. I went to two stone yards yesterday with this in mind to photograph ideas for him to look at. Here are some wonderful solutions. All are locally sourced, very rustic/antique looking and relatively easy to work with. We are going to be using a 4″ cobble detail similar to what is shown in the bottom detail through out the project to define lawn areas, stone ‘carpets’ and lawn markers in the ‘playing field’.
Bucking against the bluestone standard
