    v2, we laid the stone over a concrete slab, only because one existed already. We typically lay stone over a gravel + sand base. Never directly on the ground.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natasha Saroca added this to Design Solutions for Oddly Shaped BackyardsAug 20, 2015

Problem: Long, narrow yardSolution: Divide and conquer with zonesDividing a long, narrow yard into small, distinct zones will break up the expansive space. Rather than slicing up the space using physical structures like privacy screens or tall hedges, which will make the tight area feel even more closed-in, create different zones by using visual tricks instead. You can play around with your furniture placement, lay down an outdoor rug or introduce contrasting flooring, and strategically position built-ins and garden beds around the space.

Laura Gaskill added this to To-Dos: Your July Home ChecklistJun 5, 2014

Protect patio floors with planter feet. If you keep pots and planters on your patio, be sure to elevate them on plant stands or risers. Containers placed directly on flooring can stain it over time — or even cause rotting in wood.

1. Break it into multiple rooms or zones. Create multiple functions by strategically using built-ins and arranging furniture to establish different “rooms” for lounging, dining, mingling and cooking. This backyard space in Brooklyn, New York, has all four zones. 2. Implement a smart lighting design. This space also has a multifaceted lighting scheme. Sconces serve multiple purposes of task lighting by the grill, landscaping lighting by the plantings and overall ambient lighting. Meanwhile, an arm pendant hangs over the dining area. Hire a local outdoor lighting professional
