Pennsylvania bluestone treads are placed over Tennessee dry stack fieldstone for these patio steps. The wall and wall caps also are made of Tennessee fieldstone selected by Atlanta-based King Landscaping.
Different levels of roof cantilever out and over this stately stone patio, creating pockets of shade and comfortable gathering spots. The layering of the stone wall exterior echoes that of the roof and the patio steps.
When creating patio steps and stairs, you'll need to consider the type of texture and appearance that fit your home's architectural style and your design preferences. This outdoor space in the midwestern U.S. uses Belgard's Urbana pavers, which have the look of chiseled stone.
This contemporary home with Tuscan influences is made for both indoor and outdoor living. A covered patio steps down to a second patio, both with views of the bi-level infinity pool. Blue mosaic tile on the pool provides a pop of color.
A grated brown wall gives privacy to this outdoor shower while allowing it to retain an open feeling. A rain shower head peaks over the top of the wall. The surrounding greenery and turquoise curtains visible through the glass of the french doors add a touch of color to space without overpowering the natural feel.
This patio, steps and stairs use Pennsylvania bluestone pavers at the base and steps made of crab orchard stone slabs. The tall walls are made of existing pressure-treated timbers that Atlanta-based King Landscaping incorporated into design. The border around the patio uses Pennsylvania blue stone with a thermal finish.
Throughout this coastal California home, doors open up to connect the interior to patios just steps away from the beach and waves. Keeping a similar color theme inside and out (snappy accents of red and white) help the two spaces feel unified.
Yellow light shines from the lanterns mounted on wood columns as evening sets in around this cozy country patio. Three stone steps lead from the covered section to an open-air patio with a stone fire pit. A stone wall surrounds the patio and is bordered by a mulched section of trees and shrubs.
A bird's eye view of the rear stone patio and steps shows us the details in the design. Built-in lighting along the steps helps to create guidance and a warm glow at night. The use of Acer palmatum, or Japanese Maple and Heuchera help to soften the edges of the textured and smooth stone.
