I wonder the name of the hedges, the tall ones between the house windows and arch? So full and green ...

The hedge is made of Prunus laurocerasus Schipkaensis, or Skip Laurel. Easy to prune, with glossy dark green leaves, it can grow 8 to 10 feet tall.

They were purchased from http://www.countrycasual.com/ or Smith and Hawken, which went out of business a few years ago.

Outdoor Dreams
I love that you used the Cranesbill. They are one of my absolute favorites and I use them in mass like this often. Your overall choice of plants is what makes this space so lovely; you've taken a clean, simple patio and turned it into an elegant retreat. Very glad I came across this one...

Well, not officially slate: they are natural stone, PA flagstones set on compacted stone dust.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
Creating a space that's calm, restful and inviting is what a traditional landscape is all about, and those are just the notes this inviting patio hits.
Becky Harris added this to Get It Done: Winterize Your Patio
Assess, repair, replace and store outdoor furniture.Check for any repairs you can take care of over the winter. If you need a winter project, you may want to re-stain or repaint at your leisure. I like to give my pieces a fresh coat during that first fluky warm weekend pre-spring. This way, my wonky stacking for storage doesn't ruin my work.Determine whether any pieces are beyond repair; you may just get lucky and find a replacement at a deep discount this time of year. Clean and store furniture you're saving for next year.
Becky Harris added this to Get It Done: Clean and Prep the Patio
Prep the furniture. Remove cushions and give everything a good dusting; sweep and wipe down your furniture before assessing its state.If it's painted and starting to peel, give it a sanding and a fresh coat of paint. If it's wicker, use spray paint.If it's metal, you may need a wire brush and special paint made for metal furniture, like Rust-Oleum. If it's wood, determine if it needs staining or another protective wood finish.
Le jardinet added this to Great Design Plant: Rozanne Cranesbill
Planting notes. Plant hardy geraniums in spring or fall, when the soil is warm and easily worked. They do not need any special fertilizers.Rozanne geranium does not need deadheading, but the whole plant can be sheared back to the main crown in midsummer if desired to maintain a more compact habit. Personally, I think this stunning ground cover should be left to do just that — cover the ground.When the foliage dies down in late fall, trim it away. In warmer areas the foliage is often evergreen.
