Residential Landscape Design Patio Walkway/Path Paving Brick Flagstone Retaining Wall Concrete Brick Shrubs Flowers
This terraced landscape was in need of a makeover. Dated flagstone steps were uneven and falling apart making them dangerous to traverse. And the patio was dingy and offered limited usable space. It was time to bring the landscape up to the clean, contemporary look of the home's structure. The first item we needed to contend with was the steep hillside adjacent to the proposed patio area. The homeowner expressed a desire to not only update this space but incorporate natural elements. So when working on the design our designer chose to use large Chilton natural outcropping stone along the hillside to serve both as a retaining wall and steps leading from the upper yard to the lower patio. This served not only a functional purpose but also created a beautiful tapestry of stonework interwoven with ornamental plants that further aided in erosion control. The new patio was expanded into one cohesive space with smooth curving lines that didn't take away from the natural feel of the space. Taking it a final step further our designer chose to cut the patio into the natural wall stone to give the feeling that the patio was constructed around naturally occurring outcropping. Unilock's Beacon Hill Smooth pavers in Bavarian Blend and Hollandstone Premier pavers in Heritage Brown were used for the patio.
