This patio is full of interest. Why? Because it exemplifies juxtaposition. The boulder rises from the stone patio like a volcano rises from the sea. Both the boulder and the pavers are related by means of material and share similar

Built furniture would clutter the foreground, detracting from the rugged beauty of the place itself; this rustic seating solution blends with the surroundings
