In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at one of our favorite transformations from the past months. This Overland Park client had a beautiful backyard, but it lacked the features they needed for hosting friends and family. We loved the challenge of converting their blank canvas into a multidimensional entertainment space! Read on to see the design decisions, construction process, and material selections that went into this outdoor living area.
The makeover began with a design consultation. Our designer Rebecca Christus met with the family to assess their property, discuss their vision and budget, and put together a plan. She made this 3D rendering of the final design to help them visualize how the project would look upon completion.
No demo was required for this project, so our crew jumped into construction by forming the patio shape with plywood and siding. To ensure longevity and durability, they then poured a four-inch concrete slab foundation.
The next step was placing the pavers. The client opted for a beautiful herringbone pattern using Holland Stone pavers in the shade Sierra. The crew finished the patio by brooming polymeric sand into the joints.
We then began installing the entertainment features. The rough cedar pergola is perfect for providing shade on sunny days. Its Brittany Beige post wraps match the fire pit and bench to create a cohesive space. While the stone wall provides extra seating, the fire element guarantees that the patio can be enjoyed day or night!
The area beneath the deck was converted into a kid zone! Pea gravel provides a forgiving base for a seating area and fun hanging chair. It’s surrounded by a bed of Missouri river rock outlined with Black Hills untumbled stone edging.
For the finishing touches, we connected the spaces with a flagstone pathway and accented the seating wall with undercap LED’s. Outdoor lighting is a great safety feature and it creates a beautiful ambience at night time.
The final result – a gorgeous, family-friendly outdoor living environment! We provide a five-year warranty on all of our paver projects so that clients can enjoy their patios worry-free for years to come.
