    It would be hard for someone with a walker or needs help to walk, to navigate the gravel. Also, a wheelchair wold be even harder.

    What is the pitch angle? Do you think it's possible to revert this ranch house to similar structure as yours?

    Most yards that sell stone and gravel will have various forms of crushed granite gravel and pea gravel, etc.

    At night this same space is transformed into a luxurious open-air dining room with just a few cafe lights strung between trees. Just add a simple wooden bench and chairs to make your own romantic getaway.

    Garden AccessoriesCafe lights. Add ambience to a wine country-style courtyard or dining area by hanging a string of cafe lights. Invest in an industrial-quality version (like the ones used by restaurants), available from professional lighting stores. They’re made to last in the elements and come in longer lengths than the more widely available seasonal lights.

    4. Boost evening ambience. “Having a courtyard to eat in was definitely on the dream list,” says homeowner Geri Biehl. “We have family dinners here almost year-round.” And what could be better for hosting alfresco dinner parties that linger long into the evening than a lovely pea gravel courtyard? Try crisscrossing strands of bistro lights! Having the right mood lighting will bring your outdoor dining room to life in the evening hours. Here are more ways to make that happen:Hang solar-powered lanterns from trees overhead.Dangle lanterns filled with battery-powered candles from beneath a shade umbrella.Line up big glass hurricanes down the center of the table or along paths.Wind string lights around the trunk of a tree or the pole of an umbrella.Surround your table with solar-powered stake lights in the landscaping.See the rest of this home

    “Having a courtyard to eat in was definitely on the dream list,” says Geri. “Healdsburg has the perfect climate for eating al fresco, and we have family dinners here almost year-round.” Noyes says the three wings of the house make a shelter for the space, which can get windy due to its hilltop location.

    1. String LightsNothing can beat the soft, glowing light of café-style lights strung overhead, and since they are so inexpensive, you can use them liberally without denting your budget. Good to know: Be sure to choose outdoor-rated string lights. LED bulbs will last practically forever, but incandescent bulbs will give you that trademark soft glow. Solar string lights are a great option if you want to hang them far from an outlet.More ways with string lighting
