Scenic Stone Landscape & Design Inc. Creates Natural Stone Walkway and Seating Area in Oakville, ON
Unilock Authorized Contractor Scenic Stone Landscape & Design Inc. is responsible for this well-planned masonry project in Oakville, ON. The new home was situated on an awkwardly shaped corner lot, providing some challenges when it came to the design of the walkway and patio.
The homeowners were looking for stone choices to complement the exterior of their new home. They also wanted to accentuate the main entrance and highlight its curving staircase. The shape of the corner lot meant the contractor had to be creative when planning the walkway leading around the house to the back patio. To work with the shape of the yard, the walkway runs along the side of the house at a 45-degree angle.
The walkway leads to a striking wood pergola with masonry footings. The pergola features upper slats running in both directions to provide maximum shade coverage without completely closing off the sitting area. The walkway then continues on to an outdoor dining area, creating additional outdoor living space in the backyard.
The front steps and walkway feature Unilock Premium Quality Natural Stone – Sandstone in Indian Coast. This gorgeous sandstone’s subtle veining and natural tones are the perfect complement for the exterior masonry of the home. The patio and walkway leading to the backyard incorporate Thornbury pavers in Desert Sand with Town Hall borders in the Burnt Clay color option.

Unilock Natural Stone offers excellent freeze-thaw strength and low water absorption, making it ideal for steps and walkways. With a number of slab and coping sizes available, as well as coordinating step and cap stones, Unilock Sandstone is an extremely versatile product.
Thornbury pavers have a textured surface that gives them the appearance of natural flagstone. They are available in three compatible sizes, allowing for a more random laying pattern which adds to the natural appearance of the patio. The Desert Sand color option complements the Indian Coast Sandstone in the front walkway well.
Town Hall pavers are cast from original brick street pavers, giving them a unique weathered look. Their manufacturing process creates pavers up to four times stronger than poured concrete. They are also suitable for both traditional and permeable installations.
This gorgeous new front entrance and seating area was a project of the week from 2015, for good reason. The contractor overcame challenges with the property to create a functional outdoor living area that befits the beautiful new home.
