This project was done in West Burke Vermont in 2009. The client has stunning views of Burke Mountain Ski Resort and wanted to entertain outdoors with a patio and fireplace for those cool Vermont nights. The patio and fireplace were strategically placed to help soften a wooden deck the clients had had built but weren’t happy with. They also needed wind protection as they live on a ridge. We landscaped the entire back yard with large birch clumps and 15’ Sugar Maples. The patio was tastefully landscaped with plants that will accent and showcase the exquisite Quimby Mountain Stone we used for free standing wing walls and fireplace construction. These plants will offer more wind protection over time as they mature.
