Earth, Turf & Blooms Landscape Contractors Install Backyard Patio, Complete with Walkway, Fire Pit and Seating Wall in Randolph, NJ
Earth, Turf & Blooms Landscape Contractors, a Unilock Authorized Contractor, have used Unilock Bristol Valley as the main paver for this attractive patio design in Randolph, NJ. The Bristol Valley pavers have been selected in the warm Bavarian color option and contrasted with a Copthorne border in Basalt.
Bristol Valley pavers are equipped with EasyClean Stain Resistance – CF 90. This allows for the easy clean up of messes before stains have a chance to form. This makes Bristol Valley a good selection for this family home. The deep Basalt coloring of the Copthorne pavers is protected by EnduraColor Facemix Technology, which gives the paver supreme protection from fading due to environmental exposure, as well as mechanical wear.
The patio also features a fire pit and seating wall. These features, too, are highlighted by the Copthorne running bond border. Matching the dark Basalt of the Copthorne pavers are the black metal outdoor lighting fixtures that rest atop the seating wall pillars.
In the photo above, concrete edging is being applied to the walkway. Edging prevents lateral movement of the pavers and ensures that the pavers remain snugly nestled against one another over time. Concrete edging offers greater permanence than plastic or aluminum edge restraints, and while more labor intensive, the process is relatively simple. Concrete is poured along the edge of the pavers onto the aggregate base. The concrete is then smoothed over at a consistent 45 degree angle to ensure proper water runoff. It’s worth noting that the hardscape base should extend beyond the edging by the same measurement as the depth of the base. For more information on laying edge restraints, see the Advanced Tech Guide available for download from our Literature Downloads page.
We look forward to seeing how this project develops as the softscape is added to complement the stunning hardscape.
