Outdoor Fireplace, Flagstone Patio

This project was done for  good friends of our family. This was a special project for the crew to work on: It serves as a memorial for the late Cindy Davis, a loving wife, and mother. She was battling pancreatic cancer, but passed on December 8, 2012. Our prayers and thoughts are with the entire Davis family, and will continue to be.

A note to who may view this: On behalf of RK Masonry, I would like to personally thank the Davis family for allowing us to create something that stands for such a great purpose. This is no ordinary project, it is a memorial to celebrate a very special woman's life. Thank-you for letting us share this with you all. It will hold a special place in everyone who worked on this memorial. I would also like to say thank-you to Mary-Francis Tate, of Gardens by Design; who orchestrated this design beautifully.

We decided to give the joints of the flagstone a vintage-finished detail. (Similar to a Rope Joint)

Cindy requested the fireplace be positioned in sight of her favorite view from the house, looking out.

The earlier pictures did not have the mantle piece- It was hand crafted  with the remains of a pine tree that originally stood just feet from the fireplace.

The walks/step-paths were not planned from the start; however, they really welcome guests to enjoy the outdoor living space.

Credit for the Flagstone can be given to this guy.

There were some showers that day, pop-up tent came in handy! There are more pictures of these walkways to come, soon.

The mantel seen here is a temporary template we made. I will  post more pics soon with the actual mantel.

  6. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.coleman lay z spa inflatable hot tub
