K&D Landscape Management Inc. Creates Stunning Entrance with Rivenstone Pavers in Mokena, IL
This front entrance project was undertaken by K&D Landscape Management Inc. in Mokena, IL. The energising design consists of a Rivenstone patio in the Bluestone shade, surrounded by a lush array of plantings.
Rivenstone’s elegant charm can be attributed to its pleasant flagstone surface texture, created using Reala Surface Technology exclusive to Unilock. Each piece has a unique cleft look cast from real quarried flagstone. Using a combination of multiple sizes of units, the natural appearance of this paver has been accentuated. The front entrance serves to introduce the home, and echoes its aesthetic style. The use of a flagstone-like paver also complements the integration of stone into the siding of the home.
This hardscape design showcases an interesting combination of cool and warm colors. While the home and softscape are filled with sandy hues and vibrant greens, the patio consists of cool greys. A charming wooden bench and clay-colored planters also serve to contrast the cool patio floor. The bench transforms this entrance from a walkway that leads to the home, to a destination that can be enjoyed in its own right.
The contractors ensured that a level surface was prepared for the installation of the Rivenstone pavers. Using Rivenstone pavers as a direct overlay on concrete can lead to issues relating to height variance. Therefore, standard bedding sand, free from plastic and foreign matter should be used. Areas of higher traffic, such as driveways, require harder bedding sand or crushed rock. However, due to the delicate nature of these stunning Rivenstone pavers, they are more suited to patios than vehicular traffic.
The face of the home appears noticeably warmer and more vibrant after the installation of the patio and plantings.
