This patio is beautiful. Can this be done with recycled concrete slabs from an old driveway?

    not sure but a neat idea. you can certainly try it but my guess is that the concrete would be rougher on the edges unless you took the time to cut it into pieces. Let me know how it turns out and thanks for the question.

    The plant is a pink 'New Dawn' climbing rose. It is on a metal trellis from Smith & Hawkin who are now out of business. Looks great in the spring.

Hi there What is the patio made of? cobble stones and?

  • Andre Beluchi

    The paving work for that backyard looks incredible that it has me wondering how it was done. Well, a better question would be, was that paving done with asphalt? By the looks of it, it seems somewhat like the workers used asphalt.

    No asphalt here. The cobble border and the bluestone pavers are all set on a compacted gravel base with a stonedust setting bed. This was the preferred installation detail by the local conservation commission.

Is there a difference in height between the large and small. How to do

  • 510lake
    Wow , I must have been half asleep. In laying this patio, is there a depth difference between the large stone and the smaller brick..... Do you prepare and lay the larger first and then dig deeper a trench for the bricks? clear as mud now !!!!! thank you for you response, Timothy Lee Landscape design

    you can do it either way but usually the opposite granite cobbles, which are 4" thick, first then the bluestone paving that's 1.5" thick. We do as we go and cut bluestone if we need to make it fit. This way you get a nice clean line of cobbles making the grid pattern.

    Thanks for the question. Unfortunately i don't know the exact name or primary source. I specified the color and style the client wanted and the contractor supplied a sample and did a mock up for our approval. I do know it came to us through Plymouth Quarries in Massachusetts and that it is a native New England granite stone.

    The paving is set on a compacted gravel base with a stonedust setting bed. Joints were originally swept with stone dust but we recently change them to a polymeric sand mix.

    I really like this. It is such a relaxed feel. One of the problems I have with pavers is that they are often so uniform that they seem so stiff and formal. I my do this using the cheap 12 x 12 pavers form lowes and use some type of used bricks to the quantdrants with,
