The Andre Project

The Objectives:

Pam and Steve Andre wanted an intimate outdoor living area that would: (1) accommodate many guests with comfortable seating, a fire place and a stunning array of color; and (2) expand the experience of their existing large and beautiful screened in back porch.

The Challenge:  

The Andres were working with a fixed budget, and were firm on the elements they had to have in order to move ahead with the project.

The Design Solution:

The design approach was filled with simple elegance. It features a flagstone walkway that gently meanders to a matching patio and fire pit capped in natural stone, along with a serpentine seating wall that creates an enjo yable place to take in the fire. And finally, the entire outdoor living space is surrounded by a beautiful perennial garden and a custom, raised organic gardening bed for herbs and vegetables.

The Installation Approach:

On the very first day, Steve noticed that his firepit was going to be larger than he had expected. Once this was brought to the hardscape team’s attention, they were able to collaborate with him to ensure everything was exactly how he pictured it. The foundation was laid in a timely manner followed by the stonework. Our hardscape craftsmen produced their usual artwork by laying multicolored flagstone onto the firepit and the surrounding seating wall. When Steve saw the results after returning from work that day, his wide-eyed expression and smile let the team know they had exceeded the customer’s expectations once again. The flagstone patio and planter were installed next, completing the project.

The Result:

The design approach was filled with simple elegance. It features a flagstone walkway that gently meanders to a matching patio and fire pit capped in natural stone, along with a serpentine seating wall that creates an enjoyable place to take in the fire. And finally, the entire outdoor living space is surrounded by a beautiful perennial garden and a custom, raised organic gardening bed for herbs and vegetables.
