Umbriano and U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System used to Create Sleek Patio in Rockwood, ON
This sleek patio in Rockwood, ON, is proof that an initially understated design can be packed with luxurious detail on closer inspection. These contractors have merged simple geometry with high-end materials and textures for a backyard that screams sophistication.
Umbriano pavers in the subdued French Grey color variation are found throughout the patio. These pavers are excellent candidates for patios and poolsides because they are durable, non-slip, easy to clean and highly resistant to fading under the sun’s UV light. By laying these pavers in a linear running bond pattern, the contractors were able to make the patio appear wider and more spacious.
Low walls serve to draw attention to the homeowner’s lovely large glass doors and define them as the patio entrance. This allows the rest of the patio design to flow outwards from a single starting point. These multi-purpose walls also serve to retain large flower beds and may also function as seat walls, should additional casual seating be required.

U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System units in multiple colors and finishes were selected to create a wall with plenty of character. Opting for more than one finish will, more often than not, result in a more interesting and captivating end product. Granite Fusion fascia panels with pitched faces are interrupted by a band of the smooth Opal Blend. This creates a stunning contrast and a truly unique retaining wall design.
The contractors took great care to include other features that add an essence of sophistication to the patio. For example, the dainty lanterns perched upon stout pillars not only add soft light to their surrounds, but also complement an elegant aesthetic theme.
While fire features are excellent at generating ambience and luxurious flair, the design of a fire feature greatly influences its visual effect. For example, round fire pits tend to create a homely, campfire-like look and feel. The fire table constructed here, however, is chic and modern. It offers warmth and comfort while maintaining the sleek, sophisticated aesthetic of the hardscape.
