Black Diamond Design Landscaping, Inc. of Troy, NY create Stunning Patio and Walkway with Bold Borders
Black Diamond Design Landscaping, Inc. of Troy, NY created this stunning patio and walkway to match an equally ornate home. Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers in a chic grey shade have been used to create a modern surface with a subtle stone-like look. These pavers are renowned for their classic flagstone appearance, and can be easily adapted to contemporary styles when used in smoky shades like Fossil or the New York Blend. This paver selection achieves the best of both worlds and is, therefore, able to complement the adjacent home perfectly. While retaining a current look and feel, these pavers are able to echo the stone siding of the home, resulting in a beautiful pairing of home and hardscape.
The entire paved area is framed by a double border comprised of Basalt Copthorne pavers. These slim, brick-like pavers are excellent candidates for borders and accents because they are small and versatile, yet rich in color and texture. As a result, they pack a powerful visual punch when utilized in narrow bands such as these.
The Copthorne pavers have been laid in a classic running bond course, which is well-suited to most linear pavers. The Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers, on the other hand, were arranged in a more randomized pattern that enhances their relaxed appearance and adds visual interest to the paved surface.
Black Diamond Design Landscaping Inc. also fitted shallow stairways comprised of the Brussels Dimensional System in Limestone. Similarly to the Beacon Hill Flagstone underfoot, these wall units are textured and bear a classic look and feel. Pairing materials that express similar characteristics, or subscribe to similar aesthetics, can help to balance an outdoor design and prevent a disjointed end result. In addition, Ledgestone coping was used to give the steps a complementary finish.
These pavers were manually installed, which can present problems when commenced without proper planning and training. While assigning multiple workers with different areas to pave will speed up the process, working in a single direction or from the center of the surface is safer and protects the uniformity of the paver pattern. Working from the edges inwards can result in an irregular pattern at the point where the different workers meet, unless the paver placement is planned precisely beforehand.
