Enjoying the outdoors is rewarding in itself, and creating an outdoor experience to enjoy every day can bring the family together. This backyard in Connecticut has been transformed from dirt and grass into a multiuse retreat. A large stone patio constructed from stone pavers brings a warm charm and rustic sense of age to the space. The minimal use of a strip of black stone pavers accents the border of the patio and grill island adding style and character to an otherwise simple design. The unpretentious design allows the focus to be drawn to the beauty of the surrounding woods and landscaping.
One corner of the patio features a custom stone fire pit to gather around, while another corner features a matching grill island for outdoor cookouts. Surfaced with rough-cut stone, the island is capped with beautiful black granite. A built-in Summerset Grill with a matching storage cabinet provides just enough utility to enjoy a full afternoon outside with great food. White outdoor chairs and tables add a bright and tidy aesthetic while providing plenty of seating to lounge and relax. The experts from Scovill’s Landscape Contractors have crafted a timeless space to enjoy with friends and family that feels like it has always been there.
