TRD Designs, Ltd. Construct Beautiful, Eco-Friendly Hardscape in Larchmont, NY
With this backyard hardscape in Larchmont, NY, Unilock Authorized Contractor, TRD Designs, Ltd. has proven that you don’t have to compromise on aesthetics for an eco-friendly design. The hardscape consists of a multi-level patio separated with a natural stone boulder retaining wall and connected with short flights of steps. In addition, a short flight of steps leads from one of the upper levels directly onto the lush, sloping lawn. The upper levels of the patio feature sitting areas and an elaborate natural stone water feature, while the lower level houses a fire pit.
From a bird’s-eye view, we can see how each space remains distinct, separated both by height and by the boxwood shrubs that border the space. This use of greenery plays a huge role in integrating the hardscape with its lush surroundings.
The patio is kept cool and comfortable via a number of different methods.The large trees that border the property provide shade, while parasols ensure coverage at times when the sun is directly over head. The water feature, too, plays a role in ensuring that the space remains cool and comfortable, as do the permeable pavers used throughout.
The pavers used for this project include Thornbury in the Almond Grove color option and Eco-Priora in Granite Blend for the soldier course border. These pavers give the patio a permeable surface that ensures excellent drainage for the patio and makes it a more environmentally viable space. In addition, the water that permeates the patio is collected in order to feed the water feature, thus saving water and contributing to a sustainable landscape.
