HOMEOWNER’S HANDBOOK

LAYING A STONE PATIO

With all the beauty of a well-manicured lawn but without the maintenance, a stone patio makes an elegant addition to almost any outdoor living space and will long outlast a wood deck. A variety of flat stones will do—whether they’re smooth squares of slate or rough flags of limestone—as long as they can withstand foot traffic and the local climate.

vinse

Vines are plants on the go. Vertically inclined and born to run, they bridge the gap between earth and Sky with color, pattern, and texture as they soften the hardscape features of a property. Whether they’re energetic annuals or, slowergrowing perennials, vines enliven a landscape, trellis, or pergola with their lush greenery.
