Windsor Companies

This intimate, interconnected landscape gives these homeowners three spaces that make being outside a joy.

Low stucco walls create a courtyard near the front door that has as unique sense of privacy, making it a great place to pause and view the pond below.

Under the deck the stucco walls wrap around a patio, creating a perfect place for a cool refuge from hot summer days. A custom-made fountain is integrated into the wall, a bed of lush flowers is woven into the bluestone, and a view to the surrounding landscape is framed by the posts of the deck above.

The rear patio is made of large bluestone pieces. Grassy seams between the stone soften the hard surface. Towering evergreens create privacy, drifts of colorful perennials surround the seat walls, and clumps of Aspen trees define the entrance to this enchanting outdoor room.

Depends where you live, In the Midwest we install a base of compacted crush stone first for stone stability and then a layer of sand to set the stones in place.

I would recommend to use a push mower, unless you can operate the weed eater really good and maintain the same cutting height

This irregular Bluestone flagstone is spaced 4"-8" apart. This allows for enough soil to sustain the small bits of grass between the stones.

How do you water the grass in between stones? Is there a sprinkler system for this?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Patio Pavers Go Green in Between
As is the case with pavers and gravel, the pavers make the space easy to traverse, while the foliage allows moisture to permeate and creates a more restful aesthetic than a large, monotonous hardscape.In moist climates like this one, mosses make for appropriate joints.

This stone could be nice as a separate section for your "sunken" patio area on the west side. With the grass between each stone, it would melt very nicely with the grass at the back of the yard (since they meet on the same level). I do not know if this can be done since towards the south end these stones would have to be elevated from the natural grade level. I also think that this could be very high maintenance.
