The homeowner came to GoldGlo Landscapes with the vision of creating a large entertaining space with a relaxing natural atmosphere and beautiful aesthetics. They wanted their new outdoor space to complement their European-style home in a wooded setting. While they envisioned a place to enjoy the great outdoors, they also needed to a safe area for the grandchildren and dog to play.

One challenge of this project was sourcing the correct color of flagstone for the 1600 square foot patio. The homeowner requested natural flagstone without the blue or grey colors typically found in Pennsylvania flagstone.

The steep slope from the home to the wooded area (a seven-foot elevation) required a raised patio with multiple levels and steps. The homeowner requested minimal disturbance to the large trees, which created a design challenge and called for extra care during the build process. An extensive drainage system was needed for proper stormwater management.

Natural Stone Patio

Beautiful imported stone anchors the patio scene. The steep slope was addressed by creating a wall and wide curved steps using products tied in with the natural setting and European-style home. A storm water basin and a drainage system handle stormwater runoff. The stone steppers surrounded by a natural perennial garden lead the way to the patio's main entrance while the elegant curved steps lead to a wooded playground.

Handcrafted Railing

A custom scrolled railing makes the patio a safe place and creates an enclosed area for the dog. Gates provide access to the steps down to the woods and to the garden walkways.
