Greek Revival Recycle Princeton


What Houzz contributors are saying:

One challenge was tying the project to the existing adjacent brick driveway. Groundswell designed a new patio, made of argillite and bordered by a stone wall. "We wanted to tie in a more rustic vibe with the pergola and potting shed, so we juxtaposed the hard edges of the brick with a more chunky and natural-colored stone," Fierabend says. The stone picks up on the different patinas on the pergola's structure and the shed's stones.The resulting landscape looks as though it was developed over many years, befitting the historic property.
