After noticing the work Southview did for the neighbors a couple houses over, these homeowners recruited Southview to redesign their small yard. This family of four was looking for new plantings and evergreens to add privacy and a bluestone patio and driveway. After revealing that bluestone would not be best suited for this yard, the designer came up with a new solution-- beautiful, vibrant brick pavers. The designer chose this for practical reasons, but also to complement the brick color on the house.
A significant portion of the project had to be used as a driveway since the clients would be driving on it (hence why bluestone wouldn't have worked). This also meant that the pavers then had to be thick enough to be driven on. The Unilock pavers were chosen for the same reason. Nevertheless, these heavy duty materials are stylish and effectively define the backyard spaces.
Before: Little privacy and no defined spaces.
After: A yard that has it all. Space to entertain, eat and play.
This yard is equipped with lawn space, two patios, and a half basketball court. Along the fence are evergreens which provide just the right amount of privacy.
