Unilock Authorized Contractor Brad Rose Landscaping Inc. Transforms a Dated Patio with Beacon Hill Pavers and Lineo Dimensional Stone
Unilock Authorized Contractor, Brad Rose Landscaping Inc. designed and built this fabulous Rensselaer, NY backyard hardscape using exclusively Unilock products. The original patio was worn and dated and didn’t provide any functional outdoor living space. The homeowners were looking for an updated patio with ample room for gathering and entertaining. The new design features a raised sitting area, built-in seating walls, an outdoor bar and a striking inlay design.
The design process took almost a year and included many changes along the way, but the final results were worth all the planning. The new patio uses Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers in Fossil with borders and inlay made with Series 3000 pavers in Black Granite. The seating walls and outdoor bar are built using Lineo Dimensional Stone in Limestone with coordinating Black Granite borders. Ledgestone coping finishes off the seating walls and raised platforms.
Beacon Hill Flagstone has a subtle surface texture that creates a more rustic appearance than smooth cut pavers. A selection of blended color choices, such as the new Fossil color option used for this patio, also helps to enhance the natural look of the pavers. The natural texture, combined with large unit sizes, makes Beacon Hill Flagstone an ideal choice for less formal patios and pool decks.
Lineo Dimensional Stone brings a clean, modern look to any masonry project. With rectangular units in four different lengths, Lineo Dimensional Stone creates contemporary-looking seating walls, pillars and raised planting beds. This decorative landscaping stone is not recommended for use in retaining walls. For the best results, wall heights should remain between 12” to 16”, unless engineered by a professional engineer. Designs that include 90-degree angles such as planters and pillars can be built higher.
Series pavers feature Unilock EnduraColor Plus Architectural Finishes ensuring that the rich colors will remain beautiful for the lifetime of the stone. The surface is engineered with a combination of granite, marble and quartz aggregates, creating a striking finish with unmatched durability. The deep colors of Series pavers provide a striking contrast perfect for creating borders, accents and inlay designs. Carrying the same accent paver through various masonry features helps provide continuity across this landscape.
Ledgestone coping is compatible with any wall stone and comes in a wide variety of sizes. On this patio, the light grey coping provides a stark contrast against the dark granite borders. This helps increase safety by highlighting the raised areas at the entrances to the home.
Although the design process took some time, it ended up giving the contractor and homeowners a chance to become well-acquainted. The transformation of this backyard from drab and dull to stunning and functional has made the homeowners very happy.
