A stately brick home in Muttontown, Long Island is complemented with the addition of informal bluestone patios bordered by stone planting walls. The upper patio is level with the swimming pool and a walkway with stone steps leads to the lower patio. Large natural stone steps continue downhill through a long grape arbor to the gazebo and vegetable garden beyond. The arbor, made of locust, is a natural transition from the patio to the surrounding woodland.

In the front of the residence, a stone basin with water trickle, stepping stone path, bench, and shade plantings accent the gardens. Hosta and other low growing perennials provide a lush backdrop for the dramatic brick arches. Patio and planting walls constructed by Bridgehampton Stone.
