Inviting Driveway and Walkway Project by Above All Masonry Design and Outdoor Living of Islandia, NY, Combines Sleek Modern and Rustic Textures
This front entrance, driveway and walkway project was constructed by Unilock Authorized Contractor, Above All Masonry Design and Outdoor Living of Islandia, NY. The project features a handsome walkway that cuts a direct path from the road to the front door. Framing the walkway are two short Lineo Dimensional Stone pillars which serve as stands for decorative lanterns that light up the entrance after dark. Running alongside the walkway is a similarly styled driveway. Both walkway and driveway have been constructed from Unilock Treo pavers in the Almond Grove color option with a dark, contrasting border.
While the Almond Grove coloring of the two materials match perfectly, the sleek surfaces and crisp modern lines of Lineo Dimensional Stone provide contrast against the richly textured surface of the Treo pavers. This contemporary-style wall unit is helped to blend seamlessly into the design by the neat rows of flowering shrubs and the English-garden formality of the softscape.
To supplement the decorative lanterns that form the focal points of the front entrance, Above All Masonry Design has used capped lighting fixtures alongside the walkway to light up the flower beds. Utilizing multiple sources of lighting in this way helps to reduce glare, both from the street and inside the home, and prevents the landscape from appearing disconnected at night when pools of shadows would otherwise form.
The Treo pavers used here offer a similar flagstone texture and appearance to Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone, however, its smaller size format make it better suited to small features such as the lower level of the walkway, and other elements where flexibility is important.
The hardscape and softscape of this front yard project combine to boost the curb appeal and provide an inviting front entrance for this quaint suburban home.
