Zullo & Associates Design Inc. Combine Beacon Hill Smooth and Lineo Dimensional Stone for a Sleek Kings Park, NY, Backyard Project
This Kings Park, NY, poolside patio and surrounding area is a product of Zullo & Associates Design Inc. The project combines Beacon Hill Smooth XL Units in the Sierra color option with Lineo Dimensional Stone in Almond Grove to create a sleek, contemporary appearance.
The two products were chosen because of their similar fine textures and visually compatible sizes, creating an almost seamless flow from the horizontal to the vertical. In addition, both products feature a smooth, zero-bevel edge that contributes to their sleek, modern look. To add an interesting transition between the two planes, Zullo & Associates Design Inc. have created a planting space in front of the wall where greenery will provide contrast. The wall itself will enclose a planting area where larger shrubs can be placed. These, in combination with the wall and the raised level at the far end of the pool, will add height and dimension to the project. Complementing the warm tones of the pavers and wall units, the crew have incorporated natural bluestone coping throughout.
Lineo Dimensional Stone is an ideal choice for decorative landscape walls such as these, and although it is not designed as a retaining wall, an engineer can be employed to design Lineo Dimensional Stone walls and features above their typical height of 12″ – 16″ above grade if necessary.
In utilizing Beacon Hill Smooth XL Units, which are new for 2018, Zullo & Associates Design Inc. have ensured a sturdy and reliable hardscape surface for this backyard. The XL Units measure in at 20.875″ X 34.625″ X 2.375″. With each piece covering such a significant surface area, contractors are able to keep jointing lines to a minimum, resulting in a more visually unbroken space. In addition, the large format of these pavers significantly reduces the number of cuts required during installation.
We look forward to seeing the finished project once the final touches have been put in place.
