This garden path was created next to the new master bedroom addition we designed as part of the Orr Residence renovation. The curving limestone paver path is defined by the plantings. RDM and the client selected plantings that are very happy in the shade as this part of the yard gets very little direct sunlight. Check out the rest of the Orr Residence photos as this project was all about outdoor living!

Try a local mason or local stone yard. The installation is really important with a stone walk like this, especially if you want something that will last. Good luck.

It was part of a much larger project and the clients actually did the vast majority of the garden design once the spaces had been defined. As far as costs they are going to vary from region to region and in your plan materials so I would try and find a local landscape architect or designer to lay something out and give you a preliminary price. Good Luck!

The project is back far enough that it is going to be hard to find that info. Talk to a local mason or stone yard as different materials work better in different climates. Good Luck!

Sorry Theora, 1915, I dont know the brand of clapboard used or the exact paint . Although, a little research i'm sure will get you closer to the products you need to suit your budget. . I always say buy the best you can afford, especially if you plan on staying in your home for a long time. Also, the dentil crown they used was a beautiful touch. Happy hunting and best of luck.

Sorry we didn't see there was a question. The path is all limestone pavers. The client did a lot of the planting and selection but they are all shade plants as the area get almost no direct sunlight. Hope that helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to A Honeymoon Cottage for Edward and Bella
The cottage should definitely have a magical garden path like this.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Magical Garden Paths
A narrow flagstone path through lush plantings turns a sideyard into a magical walkway.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Splendid Side Yard Designs
According to the architect, this sun-dappled side garden was created to complement a new master bedroom addition. Yes, it's a side yard, but this space is also a private garden to be viewed from indoors. The leafy tree canopy adds a sense of intimacy. The curved stone path is edged by soft shade plants and annuals — proving that you really need only a few feet of space to make a garden. And the copper birdbath placed at the foot of a mature shade tree is an inspired addition. Even winged creatures will want to visit this side garden.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to 10 Considerations for the Bedroom Addition of Your Dreams
1. Location Your primary concern with a new master bedroom should be its location. This is probably the most difficult and complicated decision of the adding-on process. You want to know how your new bedroom will relate to the landscape, or if it even can, if it is not on the ground floor. You also have to consider privacy and how the circulation of the layout will work with the rest of the plan.With the addition of the master suite on this house, the architect has defined a marvelous path garden that complements the scheme and the new master bedroom in an enchanting way.

5. Make pathways interesting Side paths don’t need to be boring. At this home crazy paving creates a delightful pathway with plenty of texture and interest, and the lightness of the stone lifts the shady area. The green and pink planting palette beautifully complements the paving materials.
