A dream backyard
If there ever was a dream landscape, this might be it. These homeowners in Rogers, Minn., needed a solution around their pool plus wanted defined areas for dining and relaxing. This project illustrates how our designers can combine various hardscape materials into a beautiful harmony.
Chilton steppers were selected to highlight the pathways around the home, and Chilton stone was used for edging, along with large river rock, cedar mulch and plantings.
The dining area is further enhanced and shaded by a beautiful 18’ x 18’ fiberglass pergola that was manufactured in a custom color to match the home’s trim. 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.
A cozy gathering spot uses VERSA-LOK retaining wall units, in the Bronze Blend color with a weathered texture, to create a curved couch that hugs a firepit. Mondovi stone provides bench seating and column caps on the Willow Creek Ledgestone seat walls at the corners of the pool.
A retaining wall on the side of the home was created with matching VERSA-LOK retaining wall blocks with a weathered texture.
