Expanding a hidden entry with a wall, a walk, and a patio (pt. 2)

DSCF0003.JPGLast Summer we finished a challenging project designed by Spencer Jones, which we have been taking you through the last two blogs. The finished product expanded the “hidden” front entry. By the time we were done, there were a very interesting combination of elements involved in the project. Among these were: a limestone seat wall, bluestone walkway, ArizonaDSCF0038.JPG flagstone ( which was incorporated in to an exposed aggregate walkway, see photo at right), fieldstone accent boulders, a new driveway, an irrigation system for the new lawn, and of course landscaping with perennialsCopy of DSCF0005.JPG, shrubs, and trees.

I’m really proud of the crew for the quality job they did. It took a lot of patience, not to mention the skill and craftsmanship that goes in to a project of this nature. Jason Larson did a great of running the project. Jon Larsen showed his knack for detail, especially in integrating the flagstone seat wall with the landscape boulder(see photo at left).

Matt Grove and Jordan Dokken were irreplaceable in the work that they did, showing their crew experience by taking over the support work that allowed John and Jason to stay focused on the bluestone patio and the seat wall.
