Large Pool-scape/entertainment area: Southampton, MA
We were referred to this client by another happy client of ours. This project was very entailed and required our crews to perform many different upgrades to the back-pool area. After our design was approved for the new upgrades, we started by replacing all of the Pine facia boards and pillar wraps on the deck with new Trex composite boards to eliminate the previous maintenance of staining. We then excavated the hillside to gain access to the pool area with our equipment and materials. We removed all of the old paver patio and pool coping, installed a new gravel base, new pool coping, and new updated pavers using the Unilock Beacon Hill paver in Almond Grove color. Our stonemasons-built Goshen Stone pillars with granite coping around all of the deck posts to add a nice stone feel to the project as well as double a mini drink tables during large gatherings. A Goshen Stone retaining/seat wall was also constructed. Large granite steps were installed up the hillside to reach the top driveway, as well as a large Goshen Stone retaining wall to help with the grades on the project. Pool fencing was updated to a newer style black aluminum fencing. The slope was then re-built and finished off with new plantings to compliment the existing surroundings. The end result was a total transformation admired by all.

We were contacted by this client to design and create a new living space in their back yard to allow them more use & flexibility. Once the final design was completed the work began and we installed a Unilock Brussels Block paver patio in the Sierra color with a Copthorne banding.
The fire pit area was accented with the Unilock Umbriano paver in Winter Marvel color. A Copthorne band was installed in the fire pit to help tie in with the rest of the patio. A pergola was added to the project to help the client get some relief from the full sun that the patio gets with it’s southern exposure. Our crew also formed and poured a concrete pad for a new hot tub. To finish off the project, we re-landscaped the patio area to soften the house and patio, and to create that overall oasis for the client to enjoy for many years to come.

After living many years with a pressure treated deck and the constant maintenance involved, our client asked us to design/build a new Outdoor Living space for them. Our design consisted of a new set of steps from the sliding door down to a new Unilock Beacon Hill paver patio which was surrounded by seat walls to provide additional seating for larger gatherings using the Unilock Estate Wall Product. A raised planter was incorporated into the step design to allow for seasonal plantings to provide a splash of color. Due to the sites Southern Exposure, a custom pavilion was also installed to allow for a place to gather during a rainy afternoon or to just have relief from the hot summer sun.
Outdoor Living Space - Westfield, MA 01085
Our client contacted us to design/build an Outdoor Living Space to utilize their large open back yard space. Our designer came up with a plan that provided a large 1600 sq ft patio space using the Techo-Bloc Blu 60 pavers, expansive privacy and foundation plantings, and a private hot tub space. A custom pavilion was installed with lighting and sound to provide an area for night time dining, and for getting out of the hot sun. A custom Gas fire pit was installed for a relaxing night time retreat to enjoy with family and friends.
Relaxing Backyard Oasis with Pool and Outdoor Sound System
We were asked by our client to design an outdoor living space that would create an oasis type feel for their backyard. We were able to start with a blank slate which made the design process open to many possibilities. After several renderings, we were able to lock onto the final design and the end result was a beautiful living space that gives a spa like feel.
The project consisted of a new in-ground pool complete with a waterfall, jumping rock, and water jets built by the pool contractor. Over 2,000 sq ft of patio space was installed using the Techo-Bloc Aberdeen pavers. A Goshen Stone patio was constructed around the fire pit and seat wall to give a slight contrast of natural stone versus pavers. A separate paver patio was installed under the 16x16 pavilion which was outfitted with the latest Bluetooth sound technology and outdoor TV. Rock speakers were also installed throughout the landscape to give the entire project the ultimate sound experience for entertaining family & friends, all controlled by smart phone or tablet.
We put the finishing touches on the project with new landscaping and low voltage lighting. The project outcome was absolutely amazing and pictures do not do it justice.

Outdoor Kitchen & Living Space - Easthampton, MA - 01027
We were contracted to design this new outdoor kitchen & living space for our client’s new home. The new design required us to install a new engineered retaining wall along the side of the property using Techo-Bloc Mini Creta in Champlain grey color. The new wall allowed us to raise up the grades allowing us to build the new outdoor kitchen. We then removed the existing wooden deck and replaced with a new set of Goshen stone steps and paver landing to allow access in and out of the house. We installed a new outdoor kitchen with built in stainless steel gas grill, bar sink, and bar island using a natural stone veneer. The kitchen area was finished off with a new Copper dome pizza oven and low voltage lighting. In the spring of 2017, we returned to finish the project by installing the 1700 sq ft paver patio, lawn and landscaping.
