Timeless Elegance

Classic Designs often work the best for a traditional style home set on a rural estate in Princeton NJ. For the dinning terrace a bluestone patio was installed with a brick inlayed rug. Plantings beds filled with perennials and flowering shrubs surround the patio and lead you down to the swimming pool. Built at existing grade to meet DEP regulations the swimming pool is the centerpiece of the back yard. The walls were installed with Pennsylvania Fieldstone and the pool patio is Blue/ Grey Sandstone.
The project was collaboration between Harmony Design Group and Ronni Hock Garden & Landscape.
Ronni Hock is also responsible for the photographs.

For this project I think we used a clay brick from Pine Hall Brick http://www.pinehallbrick.com/subcats/Authentic_Rumbled_Antique_Pavers
