There are good times to be had on this round patio.The outdoor dining and lounge area allows guests a space to enjoy the outdoors. Made of flagstone, it features lounge chairs, floor lamps, a stand-alone antique stove and a table with umbrella shade.
Boulders and bright patches of green are a beautiful border for the flagstone walkway that leads in and around this garden. The original landscape design was planned out by historic architect Arthur Heineman and carefully respected and restored over the years.
This lovely flagstone walkway feels like a secret path to an enchanted garden. Beautifully landscaped flower beds accompany visitors on either side and grass has grown up between the stones making a velvety soft accent.
Sometimes the best spot for your outdoor retreat is a sun-splashed area. If you’ll be enjoying your retreat during the day, even if it’s only on weekends, it’s worth investing in some kind of shade. A simple patio umbrella can cast enough shade for a table and chairs, or consider adding an awning to your home to shade a greater area. Other options for creating a cooling pool of shade include a permanent structure, like a pergola (add vines for color) or gazebo. For a portable shade option, check out pop-up canopy designs. You can also use a temporary canopy to help you determine where you might want to add a more permanent structure in future.
