New patio!

We've been in our house a little over a year now and we've painted, put in new flooring, bought some new furniture, etc. Well what we both really wanted to take care of this summer was adding a patio in the backyard. I find it a little strange that nobody ever put anything in the backyard; no deck, patio or anything and this house has been here since the 70's. Here's what the backyard looked like before:

Over the past two days, our new patio was installed. We did not do it ourselves since we're both in school and didn't want to spend our entire summer working on it. These guys knocked it out in two days and I love the way it turned out! We used a newer product, Rosetta Grand Flagstone. It's concrete pieces made to look like natural stone. And here's the finished product:

Now I have to figure out what kind of plants/flowers to plants in the little dirt space in between the boulder wall and the patio. Oh, and buy some patio furniture. Why does it have to be so expensive?!
