The owners of this home wanted to include a grand staircase and driveway retaining wall that not only improves the overall curb appeal, but also makes a significant statement.
The retaining wall and step entry-way was constructed using U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System in Granite Blend with a pitched face, combined with a smooth accent line of Opal to create a unique driveway retaining wall to showcase the home’s layered gardens. Paver lighting built into the steps and retaining wall help offer ambience and practicality to securely light the way to the front entrance, while touches of flora break up the monochromatic tones. The premium Unilock EnduraColor finishes’ exquisite surface and long-lasting color are also included in the U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System to produce a driveway retaining wall that will endure the test of time year round.
The monotone colors continue at the driveway level, where Unilock Beacon Hill Smooth in Granite Blend laid diagonally draws the eye up the driveway toward the home. Beacon Hill pavers are offered in a random bundle size with a larger, XL rectangular unit, providing a sleek, modern look and contemporary color palette. As an EnduraColor product, Beacon Hill Smooth pavers will maintain their surface texture for a long time after the project is finished, ensuring that the driveway will look stunning in all weather conditions. A darker triple wide paver border helps delineate the edges of the driveway while echoing the color of the garage door, and a simple pebble garden with a natural stone outcropping is added to the driveway’s perimeter to serve as a low-maintenance outer border.
