Terraced Backyard - Southampton, MA 01073
This was a very large project in which we literally took a steep slope of a backyard that was of no use to the homeowner and created several tiers of usable space in which they could entertain family and friends, relax and enjoy the priceless views of the lake as well as play with their newborn. First, we constructed two walls using Versa Lok Retaining Wall to create three separate tiers. On top of the first wall, a sod lawn was installed for the family to play on. On top of the second wall, a paver patio was added using Ideal Boston Colonial Pavers. This patio gave the homeowners the perfect space for entertaining or just enjoying each others’ company over a peaceful sunset. Steps were installed leading from the patio down to the beach and private docks below. A paver walkway was installed leading from the back patio to the front driveway, completing this project.
Landscape & Patio Westfield, MA 01085
This homeowner desired a landscape design for their newly purchased home. Our crews installed a patio off of their existing back deck utilizing Unilock’s newest Avante Ashlar paver. Bordering the patio are Almond Grove colored Brussels block pavers and a centrally located accent using Unilock Granite stone was created. After completing the hardscape, ornamental grasses, flowering shrubs and trees were planted. The landscape also includes a four variety Lilac mixture of hedging along the property line to create a nice, interesting flower show in spring. We completed this project by hydro-seeding the existing bare spots in the lawn to ensure a rich, green backdrop for the colorful plantings.
Terraced Back Yard - Hinsdale, MA 01235
We were hired to design a new back yard for this client. After coming up with a terraced back yard design using Goshen stone to help create the tiers we were on to the next step to getting the project ready to be started. Due to the proximity to a lake, we had to obtain wetland permits before any of the work could begin.
After approval from the Conservation Commission, work was started. The bottom wall was constructed first with steps leading up to the next level. Sod had to be installed immediately after the wall was built for erosion purposes. We then constructed the top wall which also acted as the edge of the paver patio extension that we added to give the client more usable space. Once the hardscape was complete, the job site was returned back to the client to enjoy their new space.
Easthampton, MA - Paver Patio Landscape 01027
This project started out in the design stages an entire season before work was to be started. After several concepts and keeping in mind the clients love for Cape Cod, a final design/plan was in place.
The project consisted of new steps off the back of the house that connected the kitchen and mud room entrances. We used the Unilock Estate wall for the steps which were capped with the Unilock Ledgestone copping. We created a seat wall along the edge of the patio using reclaimed granite blocks from an old railroad bridge abutment. These blocks weighed in at over 5000 pounds each, and added the beauty of natural stone and a real Cape feeling to the project. A fire pit was installed for use by the kids and adults for cooking and night time ambiance. We installed an 1100 sq ft patio using the Unilock Camelot paver which gave a cobble stone feel. The project was finished off with the landscaping which consisted of some raised beds incorporating Hydrangeas, ornamental grasses, Viburnam, and Weeping Red Bud.
The overall project gave the client the Cape like feel they were looking for, as well as privacy for entertaining.
Paver Stone Patio - Westfield, MA 01085
We installed this patio using the Unilock Camelot paving stone with Brussels Limestone accent band around perimeter. The client requested that we do not paver over septic tank for easy access, so our crew installed a Granite curbing around the tank outline and filled with washed stone. The client will install container plants to fill the area, and to create a softer feel to the new space. A fire pit, new steps, and sono tubes were also installed by our crew so client can install a roof over grilling area.
Paver Block Patio - Belchertown, MA 01007
We designed a new patio space for this client to replace their existing pressure treated deck. Due to the cost of composite materials, the choice to use pavers was the best choice for the long term expense and use of the space. Our crews installed a two level paver patio due to grade changes using the Unilock Camelot paver in Sierra color with a Copthorne accent banding. Two sets of radius steps were installed to allow client to access the patio from the different rooms in the house and to be closer to grilling area. A fire pit was requested so the client and guests can enjoy a warm up after an evening swim or to just sit around having an after dinner drink. Our crews also installed a new front walkway to match the new back patio and new landscape to finish off the project.
Patio Overlay - Longmeadow, MA 01106
Our client had an existing concrete patio around their in-ground pool that was no longer a pleasant site. Upon our site visit, we saw that the concrete was still in excellent condition with no cracks, just discolored. We recommended that the patio be overlaid with concrete pavers. This option would eliminate the costly expense of removing and disposing the existing concrete patio and preparing a new base for a new pavement. After exploring all the pavement options, our client chose the Techo-Bloc Blu-45 overlay system. After the product was installed it gave our client a beautiful new pavement around their pool for a fraction of the cost and installation time.
Driveway and Front Entrance Before & After
This job was quite comprehensive, requiring a significant amount of site work. Once the grass returns and the plantings are completing, this family will have the beautiful driveway and entryway they've always dreamed of.
Paver Walkway - Longmeadow, MA
We were contacted by this homeowner's landscaper to design and install a new front walkway to replace an old concrete & flagstone walk. We designed the walkway using the Unilock Copthorne paver in a 3 color blend, resulting in a beautiful new walkway with old world charm that will last for generations.
