Turf Master Landscape Design of Wayne, NJ, Creates Outstanding Walkway and Patio with Vertical Structures
This combination Richcliff and Copthorne walkway and patio from Turf Master Landscape Design of Wayne, NJ, is complemented with carefully coordinated vertical structures. Vertical structures are important in a landscape for a number of reasons – they present interesting textures and details, add a sense of structure and definition to a landscape, and provide visual interest by creating varying levels of height throughout the space. They also have the advantage of serving as privacy shields and shade structures.
The vertical structures included in this design manage to fulfill all of these roles. The arch in the foreground acts as a doorway, opening out onto the outdoor living room. It also reflects the architecture of the home and pergola. While attractive as a decorative element, the arch also provides a vertical surface onto which ornate lamps have been attached. As the archway frames the walkway, the pergola frames the patio, defining the space and giving it a sense of shelter and intimacy. Not to be forgotten about are the Brussels Dimensional System low walls and pillar footings that add their tumbled, timeworn character to the space.
Another technique used by Turf Master Landscape Design to define separate sections of this hardscape is the use of different laying patterns, borders, and shapes. Notice, for example, how the section of Copthorne pavers in the herringbone pattern in the foreground creates the impression of a welcome mat, further reinforcing the sense of the archway being a doorway leading to an outdoor room. The Copthorne pavers are repeated once again beneath the pergola to further demarcate the covered space.
The overall result is a landscape that feel almost like a home without walls, complete with separate rooms and areas for comfort, cooking, and entertaining.
