Hello adch, and thanks for your question. We laid the gravel to a depth of about 1.5 inches. If you add too much it will feel like "wading through jello" and will get kicked up and migrate tot he garden beds. Hope this helps. Good luck with your project. Enjoy, Robert More at www.WestoverLD.com

Hello Patriciasharick, thanks for your question. The stepping stone are dry laid (no mortar or cement) in the gravel, which is set over a level base of compacted item IV and an underlayment of landscape fabric to help control weeds. The stones do not shift and are easy to shovel in the snow. We top dress the gravel and rake it out yearly to keep it looking just like new. I hope this helps. Cheers, Robert - More at www.WestoverLD.com

Very nice garden patio accent. Would you be willing to share your source for the urn? It would look great near our covered back porch. Thank you, Renee

Yes, it is a very stunning color! Looks wonderful against the pavers and the turquoise chairs.

Thanks Diana! My client found that color and painted the chairs...great for a memorable pop of color. Since this is the front yard, everyone knows the house with the blue chairs.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Easy Ways to Summer-ize Your Home
It's nice to include a water feature. If you have a huge patio, a stately cement multi-tiered fountain could be a great fit. If you have a smaller space, a simple, small, and easy-to-install bubble fountain is a great alternative.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 35 Fabulous Fountains
This fountain adds year-round color to the garden.
Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Patio Pavers Rock Out
The circular patio of gravel surrounded by foliage creates a sense of intimacy, while the flagstone pavers make it possible to traverse the patio in the highest of heels.Browse thousands of inspiring patio photos
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
Enliven a quiet spot with complementary colors opposite each other on the color wheel. In color theory, opposites are energy-packed visual experiences. Red is opposite green; blue is opposite orange; yellow is opposite purple. In the landscape, red and green are opposites, but the use of turquoise rather than true green bends the rules while still making a vivid statement. The horticultural equivalent might be a plant with lime foliage paired with a maroon or wine-color plant.
