Fulton Bluestone Patio and Walkway
For this project, the client had looked through our portfolio and seen some of our previous work, including our Federal Hill backyard renovation, and was inspired to have a patio and walkway of their own. The goal was to have a walkway from the driveway to the backyard with a permeable patio that could seat 4 chairs. We planted a native garden in between the walkway and the house.
The stone used was a thermal cut bluestone with 3/4″ river jack joints, and black metal edging was used to outline all the hardscaping.
The client requested we try to include a serviceberry, grasses, and lots of flowers into the design. Everything was picked by our designer with both the client’s requests in mind as well as the site conditions. Space was left to allow for access to the tractor equipment underneath the deck.
