We went with my husband's uncle who owns a patio/landscaping business. For those of your in the Pittsburgh are, it is Richard Bode's Landscaing on Rt 19 in McMurray, just south of Waterdam plaza. He does really good work, mostly for all the wealthy homes in Peters and USC. Our budget is 8k and that will get us a 18x16 unilock patio with a 10x5 half circle bump out with knee wall surround and 2 pillars. Here are the stone choices below and also my own design of our patio. We aren't doing a circle pater in the brick it's just the only way I could figure out how to do a bump out with the free room planner I use (which is super helpful btw, I go to Thomasville.com and at the very bottom go to the room planner link)
We also made some hefty purchases at Arhaus and are just waiting on their arrival, should be soon. I did order a special order ottoman in a brindled cow hide so that most likely won't be in for a while.
Below are all the pics of the patio design and the furniture we purchased, I'm excited to see everything when it's all done! I am itching to start accessorizing but I'm not going to bother until all the furniture is in, and our custom sectional from Leathergroups.com still has another 4 weeks :(

|Beacon Hill Flag Stone pavers in Sierra, I like these because they are bigger and will settle more evenly and provide a smoother surface for the furniture.|
