Example of a trendy stone patio design in Chicago with no cover

Modern Garden; Before and After

Contemporary Patio, Chicago

A precise path of 4'x 2' Bluestone leads from the house to a casual seating area, and provides access to the garage. Irregular bluestone paving and masonry seatwalls make this space distinctive from the main gathering area. In time, the groundcovers planted between the stones will fill in and completely knit together - covering the soil for a softer look. The grouncover plants can withstand light to medium foot traffic.
