We started the patio pergola project in mid 2009, and working most on weekends, completed it in April 2010. The flagstone was recycled from a previous project, and polymeric sand was used to fill the joints. The four support post were custom prepared by a local steel fabricator, and the wood portion of the pergola is constructed of kiln-dried, pressure treated, southern pine. The border is made of 135 brick-shaped granite blocks recycled from old counter tops by a local stone outlet. Two ceiling fans provide a breeze in hot weather.
