The homeowner’s goal for this project was for every section to accommodate diverse needs and offer many functions. Closest to the home is a raised patio utilizing Skylands™ Concrete Deck Pavers. Skylands pavers provide a sturdy platform on the deck that matches the aesthetics throughout the rest of the project and offers a longer lasting surface than wood decking. The project also includes an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, pool and a cozy gathering place around an outdoor fire bowl.
The contractor’s goal on this project was to create an original looking project with many accents and special features without sacrificing strength and durability. To help overcome this challenge the contractor chose County Materials Corporation to supply the job. County Materials not only provided a wide variety of hardscape materials in many colors and textures, those materials were readily available. Whenever the contractor was looking for more materials or a new style, he could quickly get that product on site and keep the job moving.
The project makes use of County Block® Retaining Wall System in Hickory Blend and Elements™ Paving Stones in Haven to create the project’s earth tone theme. The contractor then used Elements pavers in Serenity and Reflection to create a bold border around the patio and pool. The Serenity and Reflection colored pavers were also used to create several pathways on the site.
The biggest challenge for this project was working with the many elevation changes. Often in complex projects, an architect or engineer will have to make frequent site visits to ensure elevation and installation is on track and being done correctly. Here the contractor designed the project so every element could be built with the equipment they had and with knowledge they could implement in the field. The contractor specified County Block to combat the site’s elevation changes. County Block’s simple pin system offered a versatile and easy to install option.
The contractor for this project takes pride in every project his crews work on. This project proves the contractor has a passion for perfection because of the many minor details incorporated throughout the large application. In addition, this project is the perfect case study for what is possible with hardscape materials manufactured by County Materials.
