An unspoken rule of thumb for living in New England, is that, when it is nice outside, you stay outside.
This principle makes accommodating outdoor living space essential when creating a customized landscape design. One way of adding outdoor living space to a home is through a patio. A patio extends the entertaining area from the house allowing meals, play, and relaxation to happen in the fresh air.
This custom bluestone patio provides a flat surface for a table and chairs and a grill, while still having plenty of additional space for little bikes to ride. Garden beds with colorful flowers and textured plants surrounding the patio add color and winter interest.
The patio is also right next to the lawn which still has plenty of play space for children and room for the swing set.
Extending outdoor living space is possible for any home in New England with a customized landscape design.
