Exterior refurbishments along with a large new garage and living-space addition to this stately country home near Shallow Lake, called for an update to the surrounding landscape. Premier pavestone products were selected to compliment the building’s new exterior. Existing grading issues such as a steep slope at the front of the home, were resolved with an armour stone retaining wall intersected by a flight of wide steps that brought visual focus to the front entrance. Arced walls clad with cultured stone frame the secondary entrance, while a new driveway section creates additional parking – with flowing lines and inset pavestone bands that add interest to the large paved area. Sections of the existing pavestone were then cleaned and relaid to seamlessly blend new and old. Extensive planting was designed to visually soften the stone surfaces.
