After completing an interior renovation, the homeowners were ready to upate their landscape and curb appeal with redesigned front entry and entertainment areas. The driveway is surfaced with concrete pavers and a cobble apron.  A new cedar fence with handcrafted light fixtures encloses an irregular flagging granite patio with softly curving cobble edges. Granite steps provide transition between elevations.  An arbor beckons visitors toward a fire pit and stone patio edged with natural rounded boulders and low plantings.  Stone veneer on the foundation connects the house and landscape.
