Stone paving from the screened porch extends the terrace of a Massachusetts home on five acres and links interior and exterior spaces. The American Society of Landscape Architects award-winning design, by Stephen Stimson Associates Landscape Architects and landscape contractor R.P. Marzilli, enabled the family to explore and engage with the environment.
A paver patio section is surrounded with boulders and bright plant life for a gorgeous mix of texture to naturally decorate the space. A stone fire pit is surrounded by brown adirondack chairs on the paver patio. A fountain blends into the mulched area creating a subtle extra in the design.
Tiered paver patios and a retaining wall, by Southview Design in Minnesota, build inviting outdoor spaces. This landscape design plan includes a bar and fire pit area and sections for plants and flowers.
Designers created a simple backyard design with a sleek, rectangular pool, square paver paths and native greenery for an outdoor space that becomes a part of the home's beautiful surroundings rather than competes with it.
Inlays, with shapes such as circles and arched designs, can liven up paver driveways and give them a custom look. Southview Design, who created this driveway in North Oaks, Minn., describes it like this: "Pavers are the pinnacle of driveway design."
