A paver patio with a river-stone border will enhance your backyard beautifully. The stones used for the border add a decorative element to the design and serve to integrate the patio into the surrounding lawn.

This patio measures 10'x 11' and is surrounded by a 12" inner border of river stones and a 12" outer border of paving slabs, making a total surface area of 12'x 13'.
