Complete Yard Transformation: Paver patio and walkway

Posted by Amanda Bahler on Mon, Aug 06, 2012 @ 12:50 PM

"The professionalism and thoroughness with which our job was done was most impressive beginning with the sales/marketing and design team to the workers on site."

The first time this customer came into our design center for an appointment we knew we were going to have a blast. We clicked right away and the process began. They wanted to redo not only their front yard but their back yard too. Through many many questions from an engineer to lauging at his many jokes, the design came together beautifully! After many appointments and picking out the perfect pavers, the plans were set and ready to go!

Wow! From Pool to Paver Patio

Wow! From Pool to Paver Patio.

Wow! What a transformation! This customer came to us and said he was sick of the gunnite pool. His kids were all grown up and it was time to create a space they could not only entertain in, but also could enjoy by themselves. The stone wall that was holding up the hill side was also leaning forward and needing to be replaced before it got any worse. We sat down with him and worked on many designs, and finally came up with the perfect plan. Remove the pool, install a multi-level paver patio with a fire pit, landscape lighting, an area for their hot tub and landscape beds.

A Place for Everyone - Paver Patio Installation

Posted by Amanda Bahler on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 @ 10:33 AM

This paver patio installation 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!
