This absolutely gorgeous project encompasses many of our services and really allowed our talented designers and craftsmen to showcase their skill set. This project has nearly everything we offer, including a custom paver patio, unique pond with a beautiful rock waterfall, stone walkways, a seating wall, and professional landscaping to finish it off. About the only thing missing from this project is an outdoor kitchen!
Custom paver patio and seating wall.
For this large patio, we used dark concrete pavers with a variety of other earth tones including dark browns and even some hints of orange. The patio also includes a decorative circular design leading to the custom pond. To add the finishing touch to the patio, we created a rounded seating wall that is made from segmental wall block. However, the blocks we used for the seating wall were slightly lighter earth tones and larger blocks. This created a nice contrast when placed against the pavers used for the patio.
Unique pond with a beautiful rock waterfall.
This unique pond was a lot of fun to design and install. It is also the showpiece of this project. For this pond, we created a kidney bean shape that is bordered by gorgeous stacked flagstone and a variety of different boulders in all shapes and sizes. What really made this pond stand out was the custom boulder/rock waterfall that flows into the pond creating the soothing ambiance with the soft sound of water. This waterfall is not only beautiful to look at but also functional by keeping the water constantly moving in the pond, helping with algae and build up.
Stone walkway through professional landscaping.
No hardscaping project is ever complete without the professional landscaping to create that finishing touch. This project has our awesome landscape design all the way around the pond and also the patio and seating wall. To ensure access to the pond, we created a flagstone walkway through the landscaping and even worked in some boulder scaping on the backside of the pond. We planted a variety of shrubs and small trees that added color and depth, then finished the whole thing off with a dark red cedar mulch.
