44 LC DBM Top: EP Henry village square pavers with brickstone borders were installed on the pool deck by Evergreen Hardscaping at this residence in the Boothwynn, Pa., area. The fire pit, steps and raised bond beam of the pool are faced with Fenoff building stone. The pool coping, fire pit caps and step treads are Pennsylvania antique flagstone. George Schoffield near Edison, N. J., provided the building stone, and Rotunno Stone Yard in Avondale, Pa., supplied the flagstone. A mix of flagstone and native boulders were used for the waterfall. The wall in the backdrop is also made of native granite boulders. When the pool was dug, the excavator hit a large granite deposit. After unsuccessfully trying to break up the deposit, explosives were used. Evergreen reclaimed all the stone and incorporated it into the waterfall and surrounding landscape. All illumination is Cast Lighting from Aquarius Supply of Hawthorne, N.J. Above, Left: In Big Sky, Mont., Blanchford Landscape Group paved this expansive driveway with six-inch by six- inch reclaimed European Porphyry cobblestones to mirror the rustic look of the house. Reclaimed American granite curbing, or planking, was used to divide the cobbles, and create a rectangular pattern. The materials were provided by Stone Farm of Newtown, Conn., a supplier and manufacturer of stone products.
