question about railing on steps - Is the handrail on steps a 2 x 4 . Do you think a 2 x 6 is too large for handrail on exterior steps.

Pee Dee Ingot - No question here - just want to say I was thrilled to see Pee Dee Ingot in your garden design. It has been my favorite plant for years and yet it is so underutilized. Nice work!

It does look like Pee Dee but is actually Hakone All Gold!

Oooh, I like that too but can't grow it in Gulf Coast z9.

I can't describe the 1st time I ever saw it. It was planted in about a 10'x8' masse - took my breath away. It was at a memorial garden dedicated to the first responders at the nearby World Trade Center, now Ground Zero. This garden was planted and kept up by residents of Battery Park. I think I cried at the beauty of the sentiment, and the garden. It was awesome. So I will forever associate Hakone All Gold with that beautiful garden these neighbors labored over for their friends, family, first responders - America's heros.

I'm glad you like it. PA flagstone should be fine in IN. It can be installed on a concrete base or on dust. I suggest you speak with a landscape designer (try apld.org) or a mason in your area to see what is readily available, or visit a local stone quarry or yard.
Good luck!

Thank you Cathy. I think we're on the right path and appreciate and solicit further comment.
We're planning a home build - haven't broken ground hope to do so 1st part of 2013 weather permitting. Over the last 2y identifying "all".....or as many finishes as I can before ground break (help manage cost issues - even have 1st, 2nd, 3rd choices...just in case!). The focus over the last few weeks deciding on exterior finishes.

Thank you for offering apld.org - there isn't a listed member in my area - only 1 for Indiana. But had a preliminary consultation with "Designscape Horticultural Services, Kyle Lueken, Landscape Designer/Consultant, LEED Accredited Professional - several months ago at our lot discussing ideas on landscaping, home placement, and how to "cope" with deer/wild life since our lot is surrounded by trees, woods, etc. (I was thinking of planting roses around the perimieter as a deterrant! (Just kidding)

Also working with a local stone mason to determine selection and interest.
This IS limestone country - multiple quarries in this area. Although I haven't dealt with the quarries directly - my experience has been to go through the masonry dealer and discussions w/our archtect.

Can you see why houzz.com has been such a God-send for me. I'm a houzz.com junkie!!! Discovered about 6 months ago. I can't tell you how helpful it has been. Thank you personally for your role in that!

Warmer than DC area where I am so choice for outside should be okay. Why not call peacock pavers and ask for references and/or to see installations near you? They are attractive. Good luck!

Great patio! What type of material was used for this patio? is this natural stone? and is it set on a concrete slab, or just on it's own?

I like this alot.....Can you tell me why compacted stone dust versus other means? Would it be for drainage? Why would someone chose between this method & materials and let's say concrete and grout? Thank you Cathy!
