The stone pavers in this image were selected after the initial specification was written, so I'm having difficulty finding the name right now. Feel free to take this image to a local stone retailer and ask if they have anything similar. I hope that is helpful and thanks for your interest in the project!

Hi there,
The contractor on this project was Ireland, Robinson & Hadley, Inc. I am currently trying to find the specification for the stone, so I'll have to get back to you. Thanks for the interest!

Hi eabarber3,
The stone used here is called Winterset and it was purchased from Wheeler Zomaroni in Santa Rosa, CA. Thanks for your patience and I hope that helps!

Hi there,
Our firm did not do the landscaping on this project, so unfortunately we don't have that information. Although sue11524 seems to know. Sorry that we can't be of more help, and thank you for the interest!

Becky Harris added this to Fabulous Patios
Someone posted this patio to The Buzz and I'm grateful. It's a secret garden that's perfect for relaxing and socializing outdoors.
Becky Harris added this to Privacy Please: Outdoor Walls
This tumbled stone wall creates a cozy hideaway.
Kit Pollard added this to Trellis + Trellis
Of course, the nice thing about trellises-as-structures is that they do stick around - they can't be stuffed in the closet. I love the way these plants suggest that the structure of this patio is here to stay.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Spring Planting: Wonderful Wisteria
A natural roof provides just enough sun, just enough shade.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Tips From Great Urban Gardens
5. Creating vignettes and sitting areas. Regardless of how much space you have, creating small and intimate sitting areas are a must. This, after all, it's all about having an outdoor sanctuary in the city. If you don't have room for a dining table, go with comfy lounge furniture and a coffee table instead.
John Hill added this to 11 Inspiring Vertical Gardens
This is a great example of vertical green fusing with overhead green. The combination of stone wall, vertical planting, and wisteria on the overhead armature creates a very intimate outdoor space.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 New Uses for Your Side Yard
A place for luxuriating. This semihidden nook gets high marks for so many reasons.• The stone wall provides protection and scale. It is comparable to the height of an interior wall, relating nicely to both the furniture proportions and any people who occupy the area.• The overhead arbor is fabricated of metal, creating a simple grid that uses large openings to reveal the sky. Vines cover parts of this durable arbor, but that's OK, because they too provide protection.• The seating is just right: two cushioned benches and a low coffee table with a huge surface for plants, wineglasses or even dinner plates. And the low-maintenance flooring is suitable for keeping the table and chair legs stable.• Finally, what really makes this space luxurious is the planting plan. Textures are lush and varied. The foliage billows to partially obscure the seating area. It's almost possible to disappear within — and who wouldn't want to?More:8 Splendid Side Yard DesignsTurn Your Side Yard Into a Glorious Garden Room
Alex Jewett: Godden Sudik Architects added this to Get Wise to Size: How to Furnish an Outdoor Room, Small to Spacious
If you want a cozy living area with a couple of love seats or oversize chairs, an area that's 8 by 8 feet would provide just enough space. I usually like to tuck these types of outdoor nooks back in a corner, if possible, to make them more private.
June Scott Design added this to 6 Basic Elements of Classic Garden Style
Adapting Classic StyleSmaller gardens. When we think of formal gardens, we often think of grand estates, but the tenets of classic design can be helpful in designing a smaller garden as well. Classicism’s emphasis on proportion works beautifully in this example, in which the relative lightness of the furniture relates directly to the delicacy of the overhead structure.
