While I love the look that spread out paving stones create (with pebbles or grass in between), I've always steered away for fear of constantly having to battle to level a chair on the surface. You guys seems to have negotiated that problem by using furniture with wide legs, which, I'd never thought of as a solution. Genius!

We used cedar to build the beds. Claire did quite a bit of research during the design phase, which indicated that treated wood had several toxics (such as aresenic) and was not a good choice for raised beds. Instead, we learned that cedar was a clear choice because it is naturally rot, moisture and insect resistant. We realize that the raised beds will eventually lose their color and rot, but we're hoping that they will still provide us years of seed-grown garden veggies - time will tell!
