The fence is holding up very well, its 6 years old now. I wish i had time to locate the paint product but id have to dig through some very old project files buried in my garage! My memory says its a dark forest green by Sherwin Williams. Best bet is to get some color samples and to have the fence primed and painted in the shop before installation. Good Luck!

Yes, some refer to it as natural field stone. Sandstone is also referred to as natural field stone. Sandstone will be more of a beige color, where Pennsylvania Blue Stone is a gray/blue color.

This is not bluestone - we used new England irregularly shaped granite fieldstone steppers or slabs used as stepping stones. There are many choices in this category, you can get irregular bluestone steppers too they typically have a natural cleft finish which is relatively smooth, smoother then the ones pictured here and brown to blue-gray in color. They are usually thinner too, these here are 3-6" thick. Thanks for your question.

I'm not exactly sure but probably about 25-30' wide on average. We choose a mainly new england woodland type palette of plants. Rhododendron, ferns, birch, hydrangea, viburnum, serviceberry, boxwood, ornamental grasses, coneflower, sedum, montauk daisy, catmint, caryopteris and periwinkle.

Thank you I'm glad you like it. We didn't change the gate - they may have replicated the arch for another project and used a different gate. Good luck!

Sherwin-Williams has a great widget where you can find colors from photos you search. Go to their website and download it - its called chip it. Maybe that will help. Good luck.

Where did you get the light fixture from and what is it called? Is it high or low wattage? Thank you!

This was hard to find. We finally had to convert a standard fixture to low voltage primarily because we didn't want to see any conduit on the arbor. I believe its from Hadco but several lighting companies make this type of fixture. It was the size and the pendant style that was hard to find. Its called an onion style fixture. By the way that vine is completely covering the arbor now and looks amazing.

The material is what we call New England granite fieldstone steppers. Which are typically collected flat stone with an irregular surface that looks split. The color is typically a range of browns, tans, gray and sometime rust colors. There is another shist material quarried in the western part of Massachusetts called Goshen stone that has beautiful mica flecks and has a kind of graphic shine to it. It has more of the gun metal gray, browns and rusts in it. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for asking!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 12 Great Fences and Gates
The fence behind this row of trees makes them stand out all the more. Not all fences have to be natural unstained or unpainted wood. The contrast of the dark painted fence against the bark of the trees ties in with the color of the flagstone path. Tip: Painted fencing can need more maintenance than natural cedar. There are opaque and semi-opaque stains on the market as well.
Portals, thresholds and doorways often define a garden space. Here, the lovely curved arbor over a garden gate reads as the positive form in the side garden. It's balanced by the solid stepping stones that will lead you farther into this softly planted environment.
Nature and your landscape are great places to look for color inspiration. A green fence pulls in the color of its lush surroundings for a subtle, earthy vibe.

I wonder if Heritage Gates might have some seconds or something we could buy to put a fence from the garage down to the back fence, to hide the firewood etc... have a portion that opens wide enough to back a truck in to tip stuff if need be.
