Rue Group, Inc.

A beautiful home was surrounded by an old and poorly laid out landscape before our firm was called in to evaluate ways to re-organize the spaces and pull the whole look together for the rich and refined tastes of this client. Today they are proud to entertain at poolside where there is now enough space to have over-flowing parties. A vine covered custom wood lattice arbor successfully hides the side of the garage while creating a stunning focal point at the shallow end of the pool. An intimate courtyard garden is just a step outside the Master Bedroom where the sounds of the central water fountain can be heard throughout the house and lush plantings, cobblestone paving and low iron rail accents transport you to New Orleans. The front yard and stone entry now truly reflect this home’s incredible interior and a charming rose garden, that was once an unused lawn area, leads to a secret garden.

Hi. Thank you for your interest in our project. The paving was constructed with a tumbled square cut stone that was then grouted. As you can see the selected stone had a wide range of color variation which greatly added to the interest level of the final effect in this small space. I do not recall the exact name of the stone though that does not really matter as each area of the country, and even every stone supplier, usually give their own names to the stone they carry. I would suggest you find something similiar in your area by showing your supplier this photo. We used this same stone in another part of the property but gave it a completely different look by setting the bottom of each tumbled square cut piece into a grout base and then setting the next piece as flush as possible in the same manner with no grout finish between thus giving an old world cobble stone feeling to the rose garden. You can see that photo within all of the photos for this project. The stone appearance is very different than this photo's application. Have fun in the garden! K.
