Imagine escaping the hot sun to relax on a beautiful patio under your deck. See how Cole Landscaping transformed a tired, old, cement slab into a cozy and welcoming respite from the summer’s scorching rays. Designed with function and beauty in mind, the 650 ft2 area was refitted with durable Unilock Richcliff pavers in Dawn Mist perfectly complemented with a Courtstone Basalt border. The often times neglected area under the deck was transformed from a drab space to a calm sheltering transition between the outdoors and indoors. Sliders open up right onto the patio where you can stop and rest, venture out into the backyard, or climb the stairs to the deck above. And did we mention the outdoor shower? Who wouldn’t enjoy using an outdoor shower to rinse off and keep sand from coming into the house?

 

A well-designed arrangement of plantings, including evergreens, shrubs and perennials, provides ample privacy and nicely hides the backup generator. A natural lattice with Clematis that grows upwards shields the generator from sight. For added convenience, Cole outfitted drip irrigation with its own zone in this area for maximum water management capabilities. With the installation of 9 light fixtures, daytime activities easily convert into nighttime entertainment. The welcome addition of this patio offers multilevel recreational possibilities.

 

If you have an area of your yard that could use a facelift, let Cole designers help you extend the beauty of your home to your outdoors.
