When it comes to a bold paver design, it pays to think outside the box. The owners of this ultra-modern home were looking for a design scheme for their driveway and backyard that featured a bold paver design that would help complement the strong outlines of their home.
The driveway’s light and dark paver combination was created using Unilock Series pavers in Arctic Grey and Nordic Star, and are laid in a horizontal running bond pattern. Things start to get even more interesting as you move up the driveway when the modern pattern is disrupted by one large and one smaller half-circle design, both accented with darker Series pavers in Black Granite (Onyx Black). These particular Unilock Series pavers are manufactured using EnduraColor, a proprietary technology unique to Unilock that allows the darker pavers to retain their original color longer than traditional brick pavers.
As you approach the front steps, patio under lighting installed into the darker step pavers helps illuminate the path to avoid a potential trip hazard. A smaller garden wall sits to the left of the garage leading up to the front, and was created using U-Cara Smooth in Opal Blend. The pattern disruption continues as Series in Black Granite (Onyx Black) adds darker accent pavers to the garden wall, but also helps keep with the overall color scheme of the project.
Around back, the drama continues to unfold with Unilock Beacon Hill Smooth slabs in Granite Mist along the backyard patio that is disrupted by dark rectangular paver accents. A wooden bench is constructed into a U-Cara wall. The end result boldly goes where no home design has gone before, while also greatly enhancing the overall curb appeal of this ultra-modern home. It is a design scheme that is not only alluring to the eye, but will have guests stopping at the foot of the driveway to take in the bold design choices.
