The front auto court and front door landings became focal points of this
uniquely styled cape cod home with separate his and hers garages. Briarhill
sandstone slabs were used for the landings and curbing to pull color from the
house stone and transition to the manufactured cobblestone with clay paver
borders. At the rear of the house, Unilock Beacon Hill pavers bordered with clay
pavers create a large walk out terrace. The terrace includes a grill island, pizza
oven, fire pit and seat wall. The auto court was installed over a concrete
subbase to be certain it would withstand the weight of autos and trucks.

This unique backyard oasis was developed with intimate seating areas to
maximize the enjoyment of the surrounding elements. Large profile pavers with
black paver ribbons meandering throughout give the auto court a fresh,
modern look. To create interest, the stoop and steps were reconstructed with a
wider tread and black accents. The black accents lead your eye through the
space. Incorporating the paver accents and changing paver direction not only
creates interest, but it unites the spaces.

AMERICAN BEAUTY LANDSCAPING

After remodeling their 1800s Victorian home, this homeowner wanted a patio
that would transition down to the autocourt 6 feet below. The extended
barnstone curbing and flagstone receiving area link the terrace and autocourt
together. The idea of a carriage pulling up at any minute was achieved with
Belgard Old World pavers. A permeable base and pea gravel joints with
bonding material allow for water infiltration to tree roots. The 6 foot grade
change was addressed with a creative series of steps and landings to the
autocourt.
