Thanks for responding. i am interested in the stone on the patio, the pillars and the the wall. Also are there stairs off the deck? How do you get from the porch or deck to the patio area?

It is all natural stone. There are a couple stairs towards the back left corner of the screen porch, then there are the stone steps you see in the foreground. There are no stairs coming directly from the deck beyond to the terrace below.
