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.
