he poured concrete slabs and fire pit here act as the framework for the surrounding plantings and patio furniture
shrubs, benches and grey patio slabs
poured concrete. The gravel borders serve the same purpose as the black lines in a Mondrian painting. Not only do they separate the planes, but they also create movement and lead the eye through the design.
Neutral colors can create the framework that holds a garden together. The poured concrete slabs
interspersed concrete slabs spread around lawn
grass poking up through large slabs of concrete
Slabs of concretes can be added in a pattern with grass growing between the stones as shown here. Where the pattern would added to your existing patio with rectangular shapes extending out into the yard.
Love this for the back corner of the house... concrete path with small sitting area - perfect!

Cool backyard - economical and great looking. Did you create the concrete firepit yourself? Could you share the process? Does it have a bottom? Did you create a mould? Thanks!
What is the spacing between the concrete pavers ?
Advice on stones between gaps? - We just created a patio just like this. We got 24"x24" concrete pavers from home depot and we left a 2" space between the tile. We are trying to figure out what stone/sand to put between the spaces. We were advised
live in the Seattle area also, where can you purchase the 3/4" clean crushed granite that you used in between the pavers? Also having trouble finding concrete pavers larger than 20". Any suggestions for where to find larger ones?
Can I "make" the concrete pavers?

Are these individual pieces of concrete or one big slab with large joints? How do you keep them in place and avoid cracks? Thanks
What type of rock do you have in the concrete joints?
What is the concrete/stucco fire pit color? and Are those 1-2" blue La Paz pebbles?
individually poured in place concrete pad. Unfortunately, concrete will eventually crack over time, however you can minimize/ control the cracks by doing proper work. Here is a link explains pretty well. Hope this helps. http://www.ehow.com/how_2099353_prevent-cracks-concrete.html
i like the idea of using rocks and concrete to outline an area
serves as a place to warm the hands and maybe make s'mores with the kids! Notice the how rills of smooth dark gray river stone are used to separate the concrete terrace into smaller areas with lines extending from the geometry of the house. This is a small but well considered gesture by the designer to add

fire bowl and concrete slabs drawing the eye to it. red chairs are dramatic.
encourages more than two people to walk side by side and can make for a gregarious space.Keep in mind that pathways constructed of stone, brick or concrete may be more friendly to heeled shoes than those made of gravel or mulch.

seasonal potted garden that stretches around the brick perimeter. As Daniel describes, “He transformed it into an urban oasis.” Built over the concrete slab, the flooring of the terrace was Shapiro’s DIY project. The parquet pattern is made up of acacia tiles from IKEA. The introduction of wooden materials

Gorgeous design! What concrete color and finish did you use?
I like the concrete squares. Wondering how much they are.
Love the concrete slabs; easier than pavers for an isolated location.
Bench height wall. Concrete pads. Incorporate a boulder in the wall...
Big concrete slabs with grass

on the concrete to achieve the sand finish?
beautifully done! What is the space sizing between slabs and mex pebb
Hello Debora, I love your work and studied most of your projects. 2 questions what distance do you use between sanded concrete slabs
what is the finish on the concrete table? stain? lacquer? colored concrete?
Is an acid wash done on the concrete to achieve the sand finish
The gap between the slabs are 4" wide, which is a comfortable distance. The pebbles are 1.5" average. Will get back to you soon regarding the design project.
This sand finished uncolored concrete (regular gray) was finished using Topcast #3, which is applied to the concrete when it is wet, then
off the next day to reveal the sand in the concrete.
