Landscaping Ideas: Get More Out of Your Long Island, NY, Backyard with Simplicity and Boldness of Design

When it comes to design, complicated doesn’t always mean better. As with most things, simplicity can often be best. Bold designs with clean lines and pops of color, as well as coherent structure, make a clear aesthetic statement. Don’t be afraid of using color or investing in quality materials, and be sure have a clearly expressed concept before any work begins. With products from the Unilock catalog, you’ll find it easy to put your plans into action for your simple but bold design plan for your Long Island, NY, backyard.


For a dramatic but simple statement maker of a patio paver, look to Senzo by Unilock. These pavers are big in contrast but simple in design with their 8 inch square pieces. Special order Cremo, Nuvola, or Castano for varying degrees of contrast but consistent quality. Stain and fade resistant technologies mean that these Unilock pavers will keep your hardscape bold and clean for years to come.


The simple strength of granite speaks volumes. Umbriano pavers are in keeping with this inspiration from nature. They offer ultra-realistic texture and surface patterns, as well as multiple sizes with an extra large format being available via special order. Make the bold statement of your choice with the colors of Autumn Sunset (special order), Midnight Sky, Summer Wheat, Winter Marvel, or French Grey (random bundle only). An Umbriano hardscape will remain true to a simple yet sophisticated aesthetic for decades to come.

Beacon Hill Smooth

Still looking for a simple and bold material for your patio construction? Consider Beacon Hill Smooth. Due to its smooth texture, large size format, and brilliant color options, Beacon Hill Smooth is ideal for a clearly defined landscape. The shades of Desert Valley, Sierra, Steel Mountain, and Tuscany offer subtle blending but clear shading further emphasized by anti-fade technologies from Unilock.


The natural stone inspiration evident in Courtstone pavers is yet another choice that makes a surprisingly bold statement. No matter the color chosen – be it Basalt, Belgian Blue, Dawn Mist, Pebble Taupe, or a mix created on-site – the final result is uncomplicated but significant. The design can be uniform or random due to the many sizes offered, and the project will not fade, crumble, or stain due to the particular care taken during the manufacturing process.

Jointing Compound

Pavers aren’t the only way to find simplicity and boldness. With one simple choice, you can make a truly bold statement. Choosing a contrasting color for your jointing compound – black sand, tan sand, or grey sand – can achieve astounding results.

Wall Units

In addition to pavers, vertical elements can also make simple, bold aesthetic statements. Unilock offers a number of wall options that will make viewers stop for a second look. Two such units are Lineo Dimensional Stone and Rivercrest Wall. Lineo Dimensional Stone comes in the colors Almond Grove, Limestone, and Sierra, with varying lengths of wall units on offer. These units have no bevel, making the linear nature of the construction more apparent. Rivercrest Wall offers a more natural look with the realistic textures of stacked flagstone. Rivercrest Wall comes in the shades of Coastal Slate or Buff, and has multiple sizes for a more realistic and random pattern.
