Imagine a morning of sipping coffee and bird watching on this patio! Instead of recreating the deck that needed to be replaced, Villa Landscape designers created a raised patio with VERSA-LOK retaining wall units in Bronze Blend and Willow Creek Paving Stones Cobblestone pavers in two colors.
Villa Landscapes designers used Willow Creek Cobblestone paving stones in Charcoal Blend, matching Willow Creek Circlestone pavers for the circular patio area using. The contrasting border course of pavers around the perimeter and circular patio define and unify the outdoor living spaces.
This backyard in Grant had little going for it until Villa Landscapes took over. Villa Landscapes Designer Andy Lofboom replaced the concrete patio with a Willow Creek Cobblestone paver patio that sweeps away from the house in graceful curves and transforms to twin interlocking Willow Creek Circlestone patios.
Straight lines and right angles define this patio in Lakeland Shores. The patio is the perfect size for a couch, table and two chairs. A short walkway connects the patio to a paver-covered stoop outside the home's front door. A seat wall provides additional informal seating, and a sharp double border frames the entire space.
When a two-tiered timber retaining wall deteriorated at this residence in south Minneapolis, the homeowner called in Villa Landscapes to replace the failing wall with a two-tiered segmental retaining wall.
It's not too early to talk with a landscape designer from Villa Landscapes about a back yard or front entry makeover.
Villa encouraged the homeowners to maximize the fire pit area by adding curved seat walls using VERSA-LOK Standard in Bronze Blend with VERSA-LOK Caps in a contrasting Charcoal Blend. The circular dining patio was created with Willow Creek Circlestone in Lakeshore blend with a contrasting Cobblestone black border as well.
Villa Landscapes created a series of steps and landings out of VERSA-LOK retaining wall block and Willow Creek paving stones, using a running bond pattern with the pavers to visually guide people down the steps.
Villa designers used Willow Creek Cobblestone in Bronze Blend for the wide patio and placed a Willow Creek Ledgestone firepit kit in a matching color in the center. Curved seat walls were created with VERSA-LOK segmental retaining walls in matching Bronze Blend for a distinguished look.
The backyard area needed a makeover that was party-ready and family friendly with areas for dining and seating. This homeowner chose Willow Creek’s weathered Cobblestone pavers in Lakeshore Blend with a border course in a contrasting charcoal to create a sweeping, curving patio for entertaining plus a walkway to a storage shed. Cobblestone pavers can be installed in several configurations; the homeowner chose the four-unit pattern for its beautiful, random appearance.
Columns for the base of the pergola were constructed with VERSA-LOK Standard retaining wall units in Bronze Blend with a weathered texture. For patio surfaces, Willow Creek Paving Stones Slatestone pavers in Bleu with a sandstone border look beautiful whether the pool is open or covered.
This front entry makeover is the envy of the neighborhood. Villa Landscapes made the most of the entrance to this home in St. Anthony Village by combining VERSA-LOK Weathered Standard retaining wall units with Willow Creek Cobblestone and Circlestone pavers, all in Harvest Blend, to create an eye-catching stairway and planters.
An outdoor room designed by Villa Landscapes, adjacent to the new addition, added the perfect finishing touch. Accessible by a sliding glass door, the spacious patio and fire table area was created using Willow Creek Cobblestone and Circlestone in Lakeshore Blend.
This stunning project designed by Villa Landscapes illustrates how hardscape products such as natural stone, retaining wall units and interlocking pavers combine artfully to create a backyard paradise.
Villa designers tied all the hardscape elements together with a contrasting burgundy ribbon of color in the VERSA-LOK seat walls in Charcoal Blend. The burgundy course accents sections of the Harmony Fireplace Kit and is used along the border of the patio and walkways. Burgundy and black Comfort Craft furniture from Patio Town looks great in this outdoor room, too.
A graceful and functional curved seat wall created with VERSA-LOK segmental retaining walls in Chestnut Blend adds the perfect design and seating element. The random, natural shape of Slatestone creates a beautiful contrast with the vertical deck coming off the back of the house. Slatestone Bleu was used for the patio, with a Creme circle inlay for the dining area and matching pavers for contrasting courses.
Contrasting soldier and sailor paver courses in charcoal to define the walkway and landscaped areas, and a retaining wall planter using the VERSA-LOK retaining wall system defines the exterior.
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 their city's regulations that limit impermeable surfaces on residential property.
Villa Landscapes used the durable VERSA-LOK® pedestal stack steps, capped with Willow Creek Slatestone pavers 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 a space for small gatherings.
Villa Landscapes created a natural extension of the home's dining room that is accented by the rustic texture and random, natural pattern from Willow Creek Cobblestone pavers in Lakeshore Blend with a Charcoal border. A stately Willow Creek Ledgestone fireplace serves as a gathering spot for evening relaxation. A seat wall and steps are created with VERSA-LOK Standard retaining wall block in Chestnut Blend.
This small space went from meh to wow with the help of Villa Landscapes. The homeowner needed new steps from the back door to the back yard as well as a multi-function patio and pathway that leads to the garage.
This inviting paver patio in White Bear Lake provides a perfect spot to settle in for a lazy afternoon. The space features Willow Creek concrete pavers, with random-pattern Cobblestone pavers making up the patio and Bullnose pavers used as stair treads on a landing outside the back door.
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.
The residents at this Bloomington home wanted to dress up their front entry and create a backyard entertainment area. The Villa Landscapes solution included an entry court in the front of the house and plenty of space for seating around a Ledgestone fire ring in the back.
