Earthworks Landscape Design & Construction Create Ideal Patio for Cooking, Lounging and Entertaining in Fairfield, CT
Unilock Authorized Contractor, Earthworks Landscape Design & Construction undertook and completed this superb patio project in Fairfield, CT. The hardscape includes areas for cooking, dining and lounging, in the form of a U-shaped outdoor kitchen and shaded outdoor fire pit seating area, as well as plenty of additional space for extra furniture and features.
The patio consists of Thornbury pavers in the New York Blend color option, along with Brussels Dimensional System vertical features in the same. Basalt Copthorne pavers have been used to clearly demarcate distinct outdoor rooms and add contrast to the light grey New York Blend coloring. The fire pit seating area is further set apart from the rest of the hardscape by a large pergola fitted with a retractable shade cloth. The Brussels Dimensional System fire pit that forms the focal feature of this space is gas-fueled to ensure safety beneath the overhead structure. In addition, an outdoor television set has been mounted to the wall feature on the edge of the patio.
From the other side, the wall feature presents a visually interesting privacy barrier that keeps the area private and protected from the prevailing wind. The tumbled, antique texture of Brussels Dimensional System lends a touch of charm to this luxurious modern accessory.
Similarly, the rich texture of the Thornbury and Copthorne pavers used for the patio flooring give the area an elegantly weathered appeal. This is owed to the vibrant flagstone texture of Thornbury, and the ultra-realistic old-world street brick style of Copthorne. Copthorne pavers incorporate Reala Surface Technology to give them their authentic timeworn appearance.
A randomized laying pattern has been used for the Thornbury pavers, giving the patio a sense of spontaneity. This is is just one of many different types of laying patterns possible with the versatile size and shape options available with Thornbury pavers. This pattern and others can be downloaded off the Unilock website.
