5 Landscape Design Ideas for Your Outdoor Lounge in Long Island, NY

The use of quality masonry products is a key step in creating an outdoor lounge space that meets your aesthetic and practical needs. Natural stone and pavers from Unilock can take your backyard to the next level. Here are five landscape design ideas for an outdoor lounge in Long Island, NY.

Interconnected Mini-Patios

There’s no rule in the books that says that you need to focus all your outdoor living into one patio. In fact, some of the most successful outdoor living spaces are separated into different zones of use, much like rooms in your home are separate yet connected. One popular design tactic is to create several interconnected mini-patios that each have their own purpose. One of these patios can be centered around a gorgeous fire pit to capture some warmth and have a chat with old friends. Another one can feature a masonry seat wall facing an incredible view. Consider using Treo Premier pavers from Unilock to achieve a wonderful rustic and relaxed fire pit area where everyone can kick back and enjoy each other’s company.

Tasteful Masonry Combinations

Adding borders, accents, and inlays to your outdoor living space is a way to add interest. And, if you’re having trouble choosing one material, it’s an opportunity to use two that you love. Combining natural stone slabs and patio pavers, for instance, can form an incredible and eye-catching surface for an outdoor lounge. Take the timeless beauty of Sandstone slabs from Unilock and incorporate them with the timeworn detail of Unilock Copthorne pavers, which take inspiration from vintage European street pavers. The color combinations are eye-catching. For example, Sandstone in Stone Cliff Grey with a Copthorne border in Basalt would create a gorgeous juxtaposition of materials, and the colors make for a sophisticated pairing.

Different Tones in Masonry

The difference between your front yard and your backyard is like the difference between a handshake and a hug: one is formal and the other is informal. For example, a formal look could be achieved with Limestone slabs or the granite-inspired Umbriano pavers from Unilock. The backyard is a place to relax and entertain guests. Your outdoor lounge can have the same materials as the front yard, but a different choice of colors could make the space feel less formal. Limestone in Winter Mist, and Umbriano in Summer Wheat are some good examples.

Size Makes a Difference

Much like the tone difference between the front yard and your outdoor lounge, the size of your masonry materials will speak volumes. Small-format brick-style pavers like the chic Artline pavers from Unilock create a denser, richer visual field that makes a space feel rustic and cozy. On the other end of the spectrum, large-format pavers like Beacon Hill Smooth from Unilock will make a space feel much more expansive and grand. Large-format pavers also help small spaces feel larger, so they could be an excellent choice for a petite patio.

A Bold Statement

If you want your outdoor living space to make a bold statement, the brilliant Hex Pavers from Unilock fits the bill with a classic yet trending honeycomb shape and a variety of colors and finishes that can be used individually. Or you could mix and match for an even more dynamic look.
