Romantic Tarrytown Terrace

Often, less is more. Take this landscape design composed of climbing roses, hydrangeas, and lilies surrounding a bluestone terrace. This small, suburban garden feels both expansive and intimate. Japanese forest grass softens the edge of the terrace and adds just enough of a modern look to make the garden’s owners, urban transplants, happy. “My husband and I were looking for an outdoor space that had a secret-garden feeling,” says homeowner Anne Lillis-Ruth. “We’ve had fun adding furniture, antique planters, and a stone fountain to [landscape designer] Robert Welsch’s beautiful landscape. The white and green plantings provide the perfect backdrop to my collection of colorful table linens, glassware, and china. We love our garden!”
Dean Fisher loved it, too. “The setting is so lovely and relaxed. It evokes the south of France, with its intimate scale and the integration of house and patio through the use of the vines and other plantings.”

Thanks for your note. This was purchased locally from our wholesale stone supplier, Bedford Stone in Bedford Hills, NY. We installed this garden and patio in 2008 and the stone at that time came from China and is thermal cut bluestone. Good luck with your project. More at www.WestoverLD.com

This is Bluestone that was imported from China and thermal cut for a tight clean cut and finish.

I have to agree. My experience has taught me that bluestone from NY state is the best quality.

Bluestone. A beautiful and hard-wearing material, bluestone comes in varied shades, ranging from pale lilac to deep slate blue. Estimated cost: $17 to $32 and up per square foot installed. Note that because bluestone is quarried in the eastern U.S., shipping costs to the West can add a lot to the final price tag.Pro or DIY? Hire a professional stone mason. Large stones can be extremely heavy and difficult to position, and creating a lovely pattern like the one shown here is an art.Process snapshot: A mason levels and prepares the area, and provides for proper drainage. The dug-out space is filled with about a foot of gravel and a thin layer of stone dust on top. Finally the bluestone is laid tightly, generally without mortar.
