Mr. & Mrs. Goodson wanted to enhance one of their favorite places in the landscape. Together we discussed ways of making this sitting area inviting and cozy for enjoying time with family and friends while taking in the sights of the James River and the magical sunsets each evening.

By removing the existing stone and preparing a base of sand, we made way for 18'' squares of variegated blue stone set in a diamond pattern with three inch spacing. To soften the stone, we incorporated a hybrid Bermuda sod into the three inch spacing along with irrigating the stone area for watering the grass and cooling down the patio after hot summer days.
