The stairs leading to this backyard are paved with two different textures of limestone. The honed surface is used for the steps and wall caps, while a rougher texture is used along the wall face to help break up the smooth surfaces and create visual interest.
The remodel of this contemporary, lakeside backyard features a built-in fire pit, lighted pool and hot tub, and an array of tiered terraces designed for lounging, dining and relaxing. Vein-cut limestone creates a sleek, neutral backdrop that lets the infinity pool steal the show.
Tiered terraces create multiple spots for relaxing and enjoying the picturesque views at this contemporary Mission Viejo, California, home. A built-in fire pit is surrounded by seating. Limestone pavers create a neutral, functional backdrop for this entertainment-ready space.
New plants that surround a bluestone patio instantly give this courtyard a fresh and uplifting feel. Since the patio can be seen from most rooms of the home, show-stopping landscaping and cool patio furniture was a must.
