Waterside living evokes a special connection with nature and peaceful feelings–and natural stone is one building material that can enhance this experience. Homeowners are spending more time at home and continue investing in their outdoor living projects, maximizing the value of waterfront property and enhancing the quality of life through built-in leisure. Whether lakeside or oceanside, the natural stone designs featured in these projects create an incredible atmosphere to enjoy throughout the seasons, and they are sure to inspire waterfront living projects all year round.
These New Hampshire homeowners turned their backyard into the ultimate outdoor living destination with a retaining wall by the lake, and a flagstone walkway and patio, which coordinates seamlessly with the dock area. This project features a Liberty Hill Flagstone walkway from one end of the property to the other, which showcases the beauty and color range of the stone. Whether sitting and relaxing, admiring the view, or setting sail on an adventure (and enjoying the view from the other direction) this backyard is all about making the most of lakeside living and leisure.
Stone provided by Gagne & Son, and the entire project was crafted by Matt Brannon Masonry.
Fireplaces and fire pits are among our favorite projects to feature, and this one along the shores of Cape Cod is no exception! The view from this backyard living space speaks for itself, and the outdoor fireplace design and stone wall featuring Old New England Rounds enhances that natural northeastern beachside charm. This space is perfectly suited and has ample space for gathering and socializing, and the homeowners are sure to enjoy many magical, memorable nights regardless of the season.
