The large stone was set in concrete and then the steps are cut around its base - great craftsmanship from Jergens Construction!

Hi, I'm assuming you are asking about the patio pavers? These were custom cast locally in Seattle and unfortunately the business has closed. I suggest working with a local contractor or landscape contractor to source custom pavers in your area. Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Precast Concrete
These steps around the boulder look looked like they were poured in place, but the pavers are actually precast concrete.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to For Garden Drama, Consider the Lowly Boulder
Incorporate boulders into your hardscape. Consider incorporating boulders into your hardscape or cutting them into metal pathway edging to create unexpected interest and to add a third dimension. An easy way to create this look is to trace the shape of your boulder with a bendable ruler (available at any office supply store) onto your patio hardscape, then use an angle grinder and a jigsaw fitted with a stone-cutting blade to make your cuts. For a project like this, keep obstructions out of the way of your visitors for safety.
