Examples of Our Work
This homeowner wanted a whole property design, since their house had just been built. This gave us a clean slate to work with and left much room for creativity. Due to the intensity and extreme size of the project, it was broken into two phases. Phase One consisted of the front yard and began in the spring of 2007. A large front walkway was created using Unilock Stone Henge pavers in Coffee Creek and Terra Cotta colors, chosen to compliment the cultured stone used on the house. A beautiful landscape was then installed consisting of specimen trees including a Weeping Red Bud and a Fox River Valley Birch tree, along with perennials and other seasonal color. Low voltage lighting was installed to highlight the landscape and the stonework of the home. Phase One was completed with a newly Hydroseeded front lawn.
Phase Two began in the fall of 2007 and focused on the backyard and on creating a beautiful yet practical outdoor entertaining area. The outdoor entertainment area was to be created on the bluff section of the property, highlighting the gorgeous views of the surrounding mountain range. The entertainment area consisted of sitting walls with built in low voltage lights, a fire pit and the outdoor kitchen. All of the sitting walls were built with Techo Bloc Mini Creta Plus in the Mojave Beige color and capped with Brownstone. Over 1,000 square feet of Unilock Mirada Stone pavers were used to create the patio areas. The outdoor kitchen consisted of a central island containing a built in stainless steel grill with a back splash and several electrical outlets on the back side to power the rotisserie or any electrical items the homeowner may wish to use. The island’s countertop was also done in Brownstone to maintain the continuity of the project. Low voltage lighting was installed in the stonework. On the back side of the kitchen island, boxes were built into the stonework to hold wood for the fire pit. An 800 square foot walkway was installed behind the house connecting the two sets of steps that were installed in Phase One.
In spring of 2008, the backyard will be finished by installing the landscape, outdoor sound, irrigation system, and lawn. Updated pictures will be posted at that time – this was truly an extensive project with an absolutely breathtaking outcome.
This homeowner wanted a new concrete paver patio installed off the back of their home. First, the existing patio – which consisted of an 8” thick concrete slab with 1/2” rebar reinforcement – had to be removed and a new 8” thick gravel base was installed to support the new patio. The client chose the Techo Bloc Victorian paver in a brick red color. A circle design was added in the middle of the patio to create a focal point and add some flare. A set of steps leading up to the new back patio were also installed using the Techo Bloc Mini Creta Plus.
This project was a lot of fun, since it consisted of working with a historic home and property. We were hired to install a new front step and front walkway and the challenge was maintaining the old, historic look but using modern materials. A large slab of Goshen stone – 6’ wide by 3’ deep and 7” thick – was chosen for the front step. This proved quite a challenge to set due to its 6,000 pound weight! Once the stone was set in place, the old crumbling concrete walk was removed and a new paver walkway using the Unilock Mirada stone was installed. The Beechwood blend color with a Granite blend band was chosen to compliment the new stone step and the colors of the house.
This project included designing a new landscape that would transform homeowner’s backyard into a more welcoming and inviting space and also provide a relaxing, peaceful place for their new hot tub… a true outdoor oasis.
The wooden steps off the kitchen door and back deck were old and rotted and needed to be removed. Two new steps using the Unilock Olde Quarry stone in the Terra Cotta color were installed and a level pad for the new hot tub was prepared. A paver patio was created using the Unilock Holland Stone in Terra Cotta. A new landscape was installed, consisting of a specimen tree as a focal point along with native shrubs and plants to blend in with the natural surroundings, as well as give year-round color and add some privacy for this backyard oasis. To finish the project, the entire back lawn was hydroseeded to add lush, green grass to the outdoor space.
This client wanted a new design and installation of a front entry way for their home. A custom window well was installed using the Unilock Roman Wall, along with two sets of radius steps leading out of each front entryway. The Unilock Richcliff paver with a three color blend was chosen to compliment the colors of the home. Once the hardscaping portion of the job was completed, we installed a playscape in the back yard along with a new sod lawn to complete the project.
