Hardscapes blend beautifully in outdoor space
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.
Instead of a deck to create a transition from rear entry to the backyard, Villa designers created a raised patio with Willow Creek paving stones, VERSA-LOK Weathered Standard retaining wall units on the bottom half of the wall, and tapered Willow Creek Ledgestone units on the top half. A variety of natural stone stairs and concrete pavers create access points.
Willow Creek Cobblestone in Lakeshore Blend with a contrasting border defines a spectacular half-circle patio overlooking the lake. An inset fire pit offers all-season warmth and ambiance. The surrounding seat wall created with VERSA-LOK retaining wall units makes for comfortable, additional seating, and the stately capped stone columns can function as areas for plants, lighting or other accessories.
The adjoining patio in matching Willow Creek Cobblestone creates an inviting link back to the home, surrounded by natural stone retaining walls, steps and paver walkways.
