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 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 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.
Pool Patio and Bluestone Steppers
We started the project by demolishing the existing structures- retaining walls, steps and patio. We then installed a Unilock Retaining wall. We used the Unilock Concord Paver option to build this beautiful, updated retaining wall. This timeless look will be appropriate for many years to come. We then began installing the Unilock Brussels block for the pool patio. We completed the patio with blue stone coping installation around the perimeter of the pool. This helps to outline the pool and make it the focal point of this backyard space. The contrasting materials stand out here and we always suggest installing a contrasting border around any focal point in your yard whether it be a pool, a fountain, fire pit or another feature. For the entrance to this space, we installed a natural stone wall and two pillars to define and frame the new entertaining area. We brought in a gorgeous wrought iron gate which complements the existing wrought iron Fencing along our clients property. One of the final steps was installing these beautiful the blue-stone steppers. These blue-stone slabs create the perfect inviting pathway from the entrance of the home to the pool patio and entertaining space. The final touch is the landscape design- the cherry on top of this beautiful transformation. Our crew designed and installed the beautiful landscape beds that you see in the photos.
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.
