A fire pit, boulder walkway, and dry river bed with a stone bridge surround this gorgeous Pennsylvania flagstone patio. A built-in grill base is set next to the cedar pergola. Rustic, cozy, and charming—the custom patio area at this Gainesville home has it all.
Pennsylvania Flagstone Patio
Stairs lead down from the back of the house to the Pennsylvania flagstone, which is nestled into a rocky, tree-filled custom landscape. To the right, a top-of-the-line grill is the centerpiece of the outdoor kitchen crafted with a stone base. The covered grill and compact refrigerator make outdoor dining easy and accessible.
Diners may choose to sit around the custom-built stone fire pit, which will allow both intimate gatherings and big celebrations to last long into the night. 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, supported by sturdy squared columns painted an earthy green to match the house, is outfitted with a table-and-chairs set for outdoor dining or casual hangouts. Set on a flat square of flagstones, the pergola looks out onto the custom landscape design that makes prominent use of shade trees, small, 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 evening sojourns easy. Custom fencing surrounds the Gainesville home’s acreage.
