Drystone Falls

“Natural materials, in a bold,  contemporary design” – was the design brief for this Elmira couple's  flagstone patio. Required landscape elements included comfortable seating, dining, flexible shade at all times of day, music, and lighting for evening  entertaining. An awkward slope, broken up patio, and decaying steps were all  to be replaced. All natural stonework was selected to harmonize with the  century brick home. A sinuous dry stack stone wall nestles next to an  oversize flagstone patio. Water spills from a sharply curved section of the  wall, from 2 stainless steel troughs into a bed of black beach pebbles. Where the stack stone wall flanks back toward the house, natural cut stone steps  descend from an oversize stepping stone walkway.
