Design Project

This project near Cedar Lake in Minneapolis is one we’ve been working on for a while now.  A beautiful modern home… wow!  This will be the first of a couple posts chronicling the progress and completion of this project.

    oh my… I have been searching like crazy for patio designs like this one… it’s beautiful…this is exactly what I want to do to a small section 10 x 12 with the concrete pavers and the “gravel” ? is that gravel… what base for the pavers did you use?

    • thanks, the concrete pavers are set on a class 5 base with just a bit of sand for leveling. on this project we used lawn between some of the pavers and recently planted creeping thyme between the others. You could also use 3/8″ gravel or something like granite sand. check out this project and check out our website for other ideas. are you in the twin cities area?
