6 years in the making of this blue stone patio & fireplace with flower beds. Each stone that was laid out was garbage stone.Another words stone that couldn't be use for anything. The small pieces i made 5 flower beds around the patio and placed the fire pit at the end in the middle of it. Even the stone benches are garbage stone. During the summer months i will work on this for about a hour a day. Now all I need is Flowers to fill it.And the water fall had taken me a few years to build as well.Yes that is blue water. Its not food coloring its a spec ail kind of water die. And believe me every time that I work on it I feel the pain at night and i ask myself why do I do it?
