For a cozy A-frame cottage on the eastern shore of the Sakonnet River, Thomas Wheaton designed a new 500+ SF patio composed of manufactured pavers specially coated to resist erosion from salt spray. In contrast to the tiny, older patio it replaced, the new and expanded outdoor space has ample room for dining, sunning and lounging while enjoying glorious sunsets and tranquil, breezy evenings.

The new front hardscaping features a paver walkway framing an inset area composed of local beach stones. New plantings include boxwoods which will form a low hedge to frame the new path.
