    Ditto! I always admire nicely executed design work, especially given the skill and eye that it takes to design something like that. Yours is always some of the best that I see on this site.

    Thanks for the compliments. But it is all the installation team. You can have the greatest design skills, however the execution is a critical element.

    The stone on the fireplace is a Dolomite or Kasota stone found here in Minnesota. The patio is of the same, where the circle is all custom cut and patterned Kasota stone, and the walk way from the steps carries the irregular cut.

    Attached is a before photo of the area.

    Yep, that is beautiful work. You need to be paying your "artisans and craftsman" well, because that is what they are and they are worth a lot of $ to a company when they can pull off clean, well executed hardscapes like that. I know companies around here that would give their left arm for a guy that could do quality like that. That stack stone wall is tight, and the corners are incredibly sharp and clean. Very nice!

    Thanks

    They are really amazing at what they do. They expect that we will run though the site with a fine tooth comb, so they have learned not to rush through just to get it done. Get it done in the allotted time correctly.
