Great job Romani Landscape Architecture, I just closed today on my home and will use that front entrance patio design, with columns. Also going to put a walkway going to street with two columns with lights. I need to change the paint color of entrance door from white to a color that I'm unsure of as of yet. Thinking of putting shutters on windows to. Any suggestion or design, I would greatly appreciate. Here a Pic of home, thank you
Kind regards,
Johanna

Sanman - glad you like it. The best advice I could give you would be to hire a licensed landscape architect. Show him/her the pictures of what you like and they can properly design your front entrance and walkway with the right proportions and the right style so that it fits the character and scale of your home. Start your project off on the right foot...the design fees are worth it. Believe me, it may seem simple to just copy something you like in a picture and then hire a contractor right away. However, the contractor should only come into the project at the end... after everything has been properly drawn/designed in conjunction with a landscape architect first. Good luck :-)

Hi Jross - Sorry but we did not build the house itself. In this picture: we designed and built the front entry court, radial stone steps, pillars, bluestone walk, bluestone landing, and lighting.

Hi toiqdo - the columns are 24"x24" and the stone coping on top overhangs 2" on each side so that makes it 26"x26" on top. The height, as measured from the second step to the top of the stone coping is 26".
