Backyard Transformation: Bluestone patio, Unilock Treo Tuscany Pool Patio, and Unilock Estate Wall Retaining Wall Installations
There is plenty of outdoor living with this fantastic project. This fun pool patio and the outdoor living project used many of Unilock’s amazing products. It features a Unilock Treo Tuscany patio with a Copthorne sailor course and Town Hall soldier course. The retaining walls were constructed using Unilock Estate Wall with Copthorne banding and Ledgestone coping.
We complemented the main pool patio space with an additional upper patio that was constructed using natural cleft bluestone. The foundation walls were dressed with a new stone veneer. To finish off the backyard and make it complete, new sod and perennials were planted to help soften up the hardscape.
This backyard oasis will provide years of fun and memories for our great clients and their family!

Unilock Beacon Hill NY Blend Patio Installation
This backyard started out as a flat, simple yard with a lot of green grass and landscape beds. Our clients wanted an additional outdoor entertaining area other than their existing wood deck. We designed and created a space that best fit their needs. We started out with a demo of the existing lawn area and digging to prepare for the Unilock Concord XL in Granite retaining wall installation. We then began the Unilock Patio installation in the Beacon Hill NY Blend color selection.
The final “Steps” were to install a bluestone stepping stone path to connect the front of the home to the backyard entertaining space and to install the Unilock Concord XL Steps with Unilock Ledgestone Coping. The Unilock pillars connect to the retaining wall and steps which create a distinct, grand entrance to the new patio area. The Unilock Pillars were also installed using the Unilock Concord XL in Granite with Ledgestone Coping.
The finishing touches of this project included new sod installation to repair the disturbed grass areas, as well as the installation of Arborvitae, which is in the black mulch beds that provide a natural privacy screen or as others may call, a privacy fence. The clients have a great area now to entertain, relax and dine in their newly improved outdoor patio area.

Unilock Beacon Hill Pool Patio
Planning and design is the key to a successful project. With coordination from the architect, homeowners, general contractors, and our own design team we were able to complete this backyard project within budget, on time, and exceeding expectations. Our install team along with our vendors of course helped put this all together. The retaining walls and steps were built using Unilock Concord XL Wall Block and Black River Natural Stone coping. The Unilock Steel Mountain Beacon Hill was used for the main field paver complemented by the Unilock Basalt Copthorne sailor courses. The landscaping design helped soften up the large patio area and retaining walls. The aluminum pool code fence was installed to complete the project. This pool patio will provide many many years of use for a great family to work with!

Unilock Concord XL & Concord & Richcliff Front Entrance
We were fortunate to work with the homeowners of this wonderful project 2 years in a row. We had the pleasure of working with them on creating a new front entrance. It wasn’t an easy task to design and build over 20 steps from their driveway to their front door. Our crew put their skills to use in combination with a great product to construct an award-winning project. The Unilock Concord wall system was used for retaining walls, garden walls, and steps. The Unilock Richcliff Elegance Line paver was used to create each landing.

Blue Stone Pool Patio
When you think of a pool patio, many different stones and pavers probably come to mind. There isn’t necessarily a wrong or right! But there is always a good, better and best! Well, these Westchester County homeowners chose the best. There are many different cuts and grades of blue stone flagging. Thermal cut blue stone is uniform in color, cut and thickness. We demolished the old existing natural cleft blue stone patio around this pool. The Landwork crew then meticulously set up formwork to pour a concrete under the deck which acts as the support for this new beautiful patio. Stone by stone, we carefully set the patio over the concrete base in a mortar mix. The coping is made up of 6′ long blue stone slabs which helps define the pool edge. The work was completed in October and November 2014 and was ready for full use the following spring.

Natural Stone Courtyard
Many years ago, the Landwork crew began working at a modern house nestled off a dirt road deep in the hard woods. Prior to being put on the real estate market, the homeowners contracted us to work on a project which included landscape upgrades and railroad retaining wall repairs. Almost 12 years later, we were contacted by the new homeowners which had some great new visions. With their great assistance, the Landwork crew came up with a design that would lead to an amazing construction endeavor. Natural stone walls were constructed using proper drainage and footings to ensure longevity. Thermal blue stone flagging was set in a bed of mortar over reinforced concrete footings. The blue stone walkway was flanked with Mexican beach pebbles which helped accent the walkway. Natural stone steppers were carefully set to continue the flow and balance of the natural setting. Two amazing stone pillars set the stage for the grand entrance into this peaceful and tranquil home.

U- Cara Wall & Beacon Hill Patio
The Unilock U-Cara system helped define most aspects of this project. The retaining walls, seat walls, steps, fire pit, and front landing all incorporated the use of the U-Cara innovative system. Our team put together this outdoor living area and front walkway using the Steel Mountain Pitched Face fascia panels complemented by the Black River natural stone caps and treads. The patio and walkway were constructed using Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone in a random pattern with the XL units used within the pattern. The double sailor matched the wall accent using Series 3000 paver. We paved the way with a new driveway and Belgium block border. Our landscape design and installation team took over the project to soften up the hardscape. The front foundation plantings consisted of a mix of perennials and shrubbery. The River Rounds provide a maintenance weed-free planting bed along with a timeless look for the landscape.

Unilock Beacon Hill XL Pool Patio
The private pool setting creates a perfect summer oasis. The Beacon Hill XL pavers complement the large area well along with a Unilock Treo accent and natural bluestone coping. The pool enclosure was created using aluminum and cedar fencing.

The natural stone coping from Unilock really helped put the finishing touch on this large scale patio. The patio was constructed over a gravel base using Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers in the Steel Mountain color with a Copthorne Basalt accent. The retaining walls, steps, and fire pit were constructed using Unilock Brussels Block complimented with the Black River natural stone coping.

Patio, Steps and Fire Pit Installation
This beautiful project was completed in Carmel, New York, a small, quaint town in Putnam County. This patio and outdoor area was the final finishing touch to a whole house renovation. The homeowners had just wrapped up a complete interior home renovation and the final stage was the construction of this large patio. We installed the Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers over a gravel sub-base and gravel setting base. The Tuscany color worked well with the three color Copthorne blend. To help break up the large area we added two landings using the three color Copthorne blend in a herringbone pattern. Unilock’s Ledgestone coping in Buff helped create the perfect looking steps. The custom fire pit was constructed using Brussels Block with a Copthorne accent and Ledgestone coping. Not pictured: We also installed a surface channel drain along the length of the patio edge to allow for proper drainage. The drain will pick up the water runoff from the patio.
