Small Patio Transformed

This is a DIY project using 16x16 pavers from a home improvement store. The pavers were stained mahogany with concrete stain which took three applications to get the dark rich tone. The vegetable bed separates the lawn area from the patio area to create the feeling of an outdoor room. Since the sun is primarily over the vegetable garden and lawn areas, between the pavers is granite pebbles due to the area receiving a lot of shade. An option with more sun would be to use micro 1/4" soaker tubing between the pavers and plant with a low growing ground cover such as Elfin Thyme, Dymondia Silver Carpet or a small scale sedum. This patio is a landing area out of the back of the house that leads to other destinations in the yard. The vegetable garden was placed in an area that received full sun through the growing season and is accessible to the kitchen.
