(1) Improve limited accessibility to the back door entrance while creating a fun, new outdoor living space to accommodate a hot tub and custom fire pit. (2) Employ thoughtful and strategic design for integrating new steps with the outdoor hangout.
The back door steps were difficult to negotiate while carrying items in and out of the house, and the sloped back yard needed creative and unique terracing that accommodated mature trees.
The Design Solution:
The Design Solution:</strong> Being an older home, the Adams’ residence had an existing outdoor living space that was in dire need of restoration and improvement. Engaging our landscape architect was key, as he provided detailed construction plans for the project. The design included using a wildly unique mixture of pavers, bricks and boulders. With these materials, Earthadelic bought the Adams’ vision to life with a grand arching stairway, spa patio, seating walls, a rustic fire pit and a large patio for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.
The Installation Approach:
The Installation Approach:</strong> After demolishing the old patio, our skilled hardscape experts welcomed the challenge to build the arching stairway. From there, the new patio footprint took shape and fit like a glove. First, we wrapped the primary patio with a brick and boulder wall capped with flagstone to match stone elsewhere in the project. This attractive wall provided safety and additional seating capacity. Then we focused on the upper tier living area where permeable pavers made a great site for the outdoor furniture and new hot tub. The rustic flagstone patio and huge seat boulders were a perfect complement to the back yard, adding yet more seating capacity. To top it off, we placed some awesome lighting in the mature trees surrounding the hardscape, ensuring key elevation changes would have proper luminescence.
The Adams are so pleased to have the outdoor patio they’ve been longing for. Finishing the project just in time for Frances Adams’ birthday celebration was a delightful treat for the family. “When Earthadelic provided us with a schedule for our project, we thought – wow, this is the icing on the cake! We didn’t expect it and we thought it was a very professional gesture,” said Sam. “Their staying true to the schedule and responding to our needs throughout the construction process made it really easy for us.”
