With overgrown plants in the front and the space virtually unusable, the home owners wanted a living space with plenty of room for outdoor furnishings such as the movable fire table or a table and chairs. The perimeter seat wall gives the area a cozy "front porch" ambience.
A fire pit and patio in the backyard are ideal for long summer nights and chilly days. As the centerpiece of this beautiful patio created with Willow Creek Circlestone in Lakeshore Blend, the handsome, sturdy fire pit will be the focus for seasons of outdoor gatherings for years to come. The VERSA-LOK retaining wall block (Chestnut Blend customized with Gray) creates beautiful stairs with just the Standard unit.
Updating the front walkway adds miles of curb appeal from front door to driveway. The graceful walkway, using Willow Creek Cobblestone Lakeshore Blend pavers, looks stunning with the Prairie Tan border as well as the arched window. The VERSA-LOK retaining wall in Chestnut Blend creates additional interest with a tiered garden and plantings. Extra outdoor living space for seating, grilling or whatever you desire, is achieved with a wider patio area within the walkway.
This outdoor living space design combines the best of all possible worlds. The paver patio is an ideal shady transition spot between the screened-in porch and the sunny hot tub deck. The VERSA-LOK Standard retaining wall blocks in Weathered Chestnut with Prairie Tan caps creates stunning walls, steps and columns. The Prairie Tan border contrasts beautifully with Willow Creek Cobblestone pavers in a custom color blend. Bullnose units add a classic, finishing touch to the steps.
The random, natural appearance of this Willow Creek Cobblestone patio and garden walkway, framed by shade-loving annuals and perennials, creates restful spaces. VERSA-LOK columns using the Standard unit create an eye-catching entrance to the circular patio, inviting you to gather for evening relaxation.
When homeowners in Falcon Heights wanted to add an outdoor patio between a driveway and their home, they discovered that their plans would exceed the city's limit on impermeable surfaces.
Limits on impervious surfaces are not uncommon. Each municipality in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area must file an annual report of its stormwater management practices as required by Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
The homeowners decided that permeable pavers would be an environmentally friendly solution that would meet the city's impervious footprint limit. They selected Willow Creek Brickstone Permeable and Aqua-Loc pavers.
The new outdoor space includes a dining area, firepit patio surrounded by a VERSA-LOK seat wall, and steps that connect the patio to a sliding door and a side entrance. The combination of two styles of permeable paver lends the outdoor space a unique appearance, while meeting regulations that limit impermeable surfaces on residential property.
The lack of a dedicated outdoor dining area and deteriorating wooden steps prompted this homeowner in Richfield to update the back entrance. Villa Landscapes used the durable Versa-Lok® pedestal stack steps, capped with Willow Creek Slatestone in Bleu for the landing, and added contrasting treads and borders. The steps flow easily to both the new patio and the existing sidewalk, while the elevated patio defines the space for small gatherings. The homeowner plans a second project that will include a grill island niche between the Slatestone patio and the home's wing wall.
This homeowner in Eden Prairie wanted to freshen up the home's entrance, widen the walkway and make it one level. By removing an extra step and creating a patio with the new entrance, Villa created a multi-purpose and visually stunning feature to the home. The homeowner can use the extra space of the patio for entertaining and for access when it is needed. Which product? Villa also selected appropriately sized greenery to open up the entry, rock and bark mulch for variety, contrasting soldier and sailor paver courses in charcoal to define the walkway and landscaped areas, and a retaining wall planter to define the exterior. The result is an extraordinary entrance that is both multi-functional and welcoming and ultimately a safer entrance.
