old world patio pavers with grass grout

Vine-walled stone garden patio with fire pit

Built-in seating for dining is flanked by raised planting beds while a fire pit and freestanding bench create an outdoor lounge. Vines cover surrounding fences and tall, colorful plants fill the beds; this "vertical" gardening allows for a big, open patio and lush plantings. Photo by Andrew Takeuchi.

Design tip: Precast concrete pavers, set on a sand base, create a permeable patio surface which allows rainwater to seep into the ground, recharging aquifers and decreasing run-off.
