The flagstone pathway from our driveway to the back door of our house
was beginning to become a tripping hazard.
A heel or a toe could get caught in the crack between stones.
So Colleen contacted our friend, the stone mason Octavio Toscano to
- set the path in a cement base
- eliminate the cracks
- put a curve in it, to (a) make it more visually interesting (b) shield
the back door from view of a stranger standing in the driveway.
- and also firm up the stepping stones through the baby mondo grass
- and reduce the step-up from the garden to the deck
These are the "after" pictures:
The similar view as above.
The connector to the deck.
The two approaches to the deck.
From the kitchen door, this is how you get to the deck.
Looking out from the deck.
Looking at Colleen's new art studio from the deck.
For comparison, here is a picture from a year earlier; look how much the
palms have grown:
