New Flagstone Patio

Flagstone Patio

We just finished this custom dry laid flagstone patio in Weaverville, NC

This patio includes an inlay pattern in the center. While the rest of the patio is a random pattern, the central inlay draws your eye and invites you in.

The special part about this patio project was the custom wood bench.

My carpenter custom made this glue-lam curved bench from trees on his property.

The bench was then cut into two 1000 pound boulders. Creating a beautiful and functional feature.

In addition to the stone and wood in the design of this feature, we installed a landscape lighting system so that it can be enjoyed at night.

This was a fun feature to build and we hope to build more features like this in the future.

Give us a call if you would like something like this in your yard!

Wood, Stone and Water…

Pondless Waterfall

Working in the landscape industry allows us to create beautiful features with lots of different types of materials. We are just finishing up this custom Pondless waterfall in Weaverville, NC.

This was a fun waterfall to build and was designed to flow out from under the new deck that we had built. Blending the new deck into the rock work and waterfall.

In order to do this we had to custom cut the stairs into one of our waterfall frame boulders.

Wood stairs and boulder

At first it seemed like a problem. We didn’t plan to cut the step stringers into the boulder. But after we set the waterfall rocks, we realized the frame boulder was too tall. So we got together with the carpenter and came up with a solution. In the end I think it helped to meld the two features together.

Waterfall and deck

We’ve had the opportunity to use wood, stone and even metal into some of our features. I really love to be able to blend the different materials when possible.

There are lots of options for your water feature projects. So think outside the box and be creative!

Also using ceramics and sculpture can be a fun way to create a water feature or fountain

Koi pond and waterfall

We just finished this really fun project in Burnsville, NC. Our clients had an existing Koi pond that was failing. It was an old wooden structure the retained the pond.

We talked about options to fix the feature and deck that a rebuilt was needed. So we made plans to create a new outdoor space around the pond. The finished design incorporated a new dedicated Koi pond, a Pondless waterfall, stone stairs and a dry laid flagstone patio.

Koi pond and patio

The pond ended up being 10×15 ft by 6 ft deep. We installed a rotating drum filter with a moving bed biological filtration system. This filter is top of the line and automatically cleans itself!

Below the pond we installed a Pondless waterfall with a Filtrific filter. We installed this waterfall seem as it flows out of the pond, but it’s a separate system.

Pondless Waterfall

We also installed a stone slab stairway that wrapped around the pond and leads you down to the lower waterfall.

Pondless Waterfalls

There is a stone bridge over the falls that makes a great feature.

It was an amazing project to be a part of. And I’m very thankful to be able to work with such awesome clients!

We always think of functionality and longevity first. But to be able to add an artistic flare to your outdoor living space is a beautiful thing.

Using wood, rock and water together in a project always gets me excited. It reminds me of nature every time. Like sitting by a mountain stream with the roots of a tree hugging a large boulder.
