patio, grass, unfinished, helpThis paver patio project was simple but brought much more character to the customer's front porch area. They use their front porch a lot, but it wasn't big enough. They also wanted to  include an area "just for mom", have steps stepping down the hill leading to the pool area, and have a small path through the herb garden to access the hose faucet. Some landscape lighting was also added. Here is what we came up with, resulting in a very satisfied customer!

We started with the design phase.

The customer came into the showroom, picked out their pavers, and the installation process began!

The patio came out beautiful. Laid in Techo-Bloc's Blu 60 in Champlain Gray, created to mimick natural bluestone. Techo-Bloc's Shale Gray Parisien square cordinates well as a border.patio, blu 60 paver, techo-bloc, add-on patio

Low-voltage landscape lighting was also added. The tall lights in the background of the photo are a unique lighting combination from Alliance Outdoor Lighting of tiki torch on top (to keep those pesky bugs away) and low voltage area light underneath, expanding the hours of use on the patio. What a great idea!

Ideal's Rosetta steps, distributed by New England Silica, comes in many different sizes and colors and are made to look like big slabs of natrual stones. Perfect for an informal staircase!
