A heavy cedar pergola with ceiling fans provides shady seating among stone retaining and seat walls. A dry river bed and stone bridge add charm to this Gainesville custom landscape.
Pennsylvania Flagstone Patio
Stairs lead down from the back of the house to the Pennsylvania flagstone patio, which is nestled into a stone-covered foundation accented with thin-trunked trees. To the right, a built-in grill done in stone is the hero of the outdoor kitchen. Diners may choose to sit around the custom-built stone fire pit, which will keep revelers warm long after dark.
The fire pit is perfectly placed in a sunken area just below the main patio level, with a seating wall surrounding the outside in a half circle. Large, irregular-shaped flat boulders make up paths to the outdoor kitchen, the pergola, and the landscaping beyond.
The heavy cedar pergola was installed on a flat square of flagstones looking out onto the custom landscape design’s shade trees, hardy ground plantings, and boulder walkways.
One unique element of this Gainesville home’s landscape is the dry riverbed made of grey and white stones. Stretching out behind the pergola and running the length of the patio space, the riverbed adds a tactile, dimensional feature to the scene.
A flat stone bridge with path lights around it creates a way across the riverbed, extending the path from the fire pit. Landscape lighting along the paths and throughout the space makes after-dark strolls easy. Custom fencing surrounds the Gainesville home’s acreage.
