Timeless Elegance traditional garage and shed

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.

I am sure where we purchased this trellis. I am sure you could find something similar on the internet.

Love the rich dark color of the mulch - what type of mulch is this? - Our mulch is red/brown and I prefer the type you used. Could you tell me what type of mulch this is?

We used Tennessee Blue Gray pattern Flagstone. It is similar to PA Bluestone but does not get hot around the swimming pool. Slightly more grey then bluestone.
