Curves and Texture Contrast

This young family of five contacted us because they wanted an outdoor space that was truly special. They were new to their home and wanted to turn their blank backyard into a place where they could create memories as their three young boys grew.

The final design included a built-in grill with space for dining and a lounge area featuring a fireplace. The two-tiered patio featured a tapestry of different Techo-Bloc products and colors that blended seamlessly with each other and the house. Though it looks much different than other projects, the hardscape features many Outdoor Dreams’ favorites including BLU 60 slabs, Villagio pavers and Antika pavers from Techo-Bloc. The pillars, fireplace and grill structure are accented with Sahara Gold natural stone veneer.

The hardscape was accented with rustic landscaping inspired by Colorado scenery. Along with hand-picked boulders, the landscape is composed of a unique plant combination that includes Hollywood Junipers, Golden Smoke Trees, Blue Spruces and a creative, texture-filled mix of perennials. The landscape and hardscape are both highlighted by a thorough lighting system that allows the client to enjoy the entire space long after the sun goes down.

The final result of this Outdoor Dreams Journey is one of our most unique spaces and the client is thrilled with the outcome! We really enjoyed our time with this client and even their boys were sad when Mr. Geoff stopped coming each day.
