Turf Master Landscape Design Gives Historical Design Prominent Position in this Wayne, NJ, Driveway Project
As well as offering a range of valuable landscaping services to home and business owners, Authorized Unilock Contractor, Turf Master Landscape Design, specializes in creating detailed custom inlays. The design featured here was adapted from a piece of jewelry of great personal value – a family heirloom – belonging to the homeowners. As such, the homeowners wanted the design featured in a prominent position on the property. And what better place than on the manorial driveway of this exquisite home? As well as being significant to the homeowners, the design mirrors the historical tone of the property, matching the intricately detailed wrought iron light fixtures and the slate roof of the building, in both style and color.
In order to achieve a high degree of contrast, as well as to reflect the colors of the home, the driveway makes use of Unilock Transition pavers for the main body of the driveway, Umbriano pavers in both the Summer Wheat and Midnight Sky color options for the inlay, and Courtstone as a border paver.
As demonstrated in the photo, Turf Master Landscape Design achieve a high degree of accuracy in their construction of inlays by first laying the geometrical elements of the feature – the outline, border, and inset circle – before moving on to the more detailed fleur-de-lis style insignia. The insignia is then laid out in full and the pavers are cut to size and shape to ensure the correct dimensions. Once the insignia is arranged in its entirety, its outline is marked, and the underlying pavers are cut and replaced. Finally, the pavers making up the insignia can be slotted snugly into place. When marking the outline of inlays, it’s important to remember to leave some room for jointing sand to avoid difficulties in placement.
