As my wife and I discussed the garden renovation with our designer/contractor, one of the things I insisted upon was a large patio. I wanted space to set up a portable steaming track (as well as space to swing sheet goods through a table saw on occasion). With the jungle cleared, the services laid, and the gravel spread, the landscaper’s stone expert got to work.
Al worked on his own – no need for distractions, I guess – and spent two and a half days laying out the patio:
It was wonderful watching the patio grow from a single square into this new, welcoming space. We’re looking forward to hosting parties (and steam-ups) in our garden!
(The inspectors, well… inspect)
Next up, some greenery…
