You don’t have to escape to a remote island in order to experience tropical bliss. Investing in your landscape design can grant you a personal tropical paradise in the comfort of your backyard. Here are a few Unilock pavers to inspire your outdoor oasis.
These sleek, geometric pavers are perfect for creating your very own tropical resort. This elegant poolside patio showcases Umbriano pavers in the Winter Marvel color variation. These pavers are relatively muted, creating a stunning contrast against the vibrant blue water and crisp green lawns. Umbriano pavers bear subtle color gradations on their surfaces, mimicking the captivating beauty of granite. Adding the visual appeal of natural stone to your landscape further contributes to its organic, tropical appeal. A sleek water feature contributes the relaxing sound of running water to the space, while recliners serve to make guests feel like they are truly being pampered at a far-away resort. A wooden pergola bathes its surroundings in warm color and texture and adds a natural touch to the concrete hardscape.
