Design Elements & Amenities
This patio has bold curves that soften the hardscape and add natural elements. Our client wanted a patio that was large enough for big groups of people but also small enough for more intimate moments such as morning coffee with his wife! We installed hardscape lights along the patio for safety and ambiance. Working with natural products takes a little more time because of irregularities but we love the way this raised patio turned out! Our foreman and landscape manager worked hard to get this one right!
The client mixed man-made and natural products for this gorgeous patio. We raised the patio in order to address some grading and water issues. The client wanted to use a natural stone to add some interest. We used a cut-stone called weathered Chilton from Weber Stone Company in Anamosa, Iowa. Slate in Bluestone from RCP (Rochester Concrete Products) for the slabs adds a bold look. We dressed up the patio with an onyx Cobble Stone inlay from RCP. Finally, for the kingrow we used Slate Bullnose which flows great with the slate patio. Finally, tying in the existing trees with raised planters made from weathered Chilton, finished the look!
