HNA Hardscape Project Award Winner Permeable Paradise Grand Island, Nebraska Grindstone Hardscapes The goal was to create a maintenance-free system with extreme curb appeal for these homeowners when installing their new driveway, patio, and front entrance. The entire project is permeable and heated, including the front steps. The three piece paver used Gascony Tan for the field to match the home and Brookestone slate for accents. The field was laid at a 45 degree angle to the house, a solution to the road not being square to any entrance on the driveway or walk. The pavers never see the snow or ice on them. Both are drained through the joints as soon as touching the surface. The heat cord had to be fastened to wire mesh on top of the rock base to hold it in place, and then the bedding layer was screeded over it. Traditional paver edging/grid was used on the driveway as an edge restraint, with a decorative concrete curb being laid over top of it, to increase strength and tie it in with the landscapes on the property. Each entrance to the circle drive and to the front door is announced by custom columns built on each side. There are 9 columns total. Each includes four LED low voltage lights for nighttime accent, and one holds a built in mailbox and package delivery shelf. All mail and packages can be picked up right from the car window.

The uneven back yard was graded into ¬upper and lower levels with an industrial style, concrete wall. Linear pavers lead the garden stroller from place to place alongside a rain garden filled with swaying grasses that spans the side yard and culminates at a gracefully arching pomegranate tree, A bubbling boulder water feature murmurs soothing sounds. A large steel and willow-roof pergola creates a shady space to dine in and chaise lounges and chairs bask in the surrounding shade. The transformation was completed with a bold and biodiverse selection of low water, climate appropriate plants that make the space come alive. branches laden with impossibly red blossoms and fruit.

We completely renovated a simple low-lying house for a university family by opening the back side with large windows and a wrap-around patio. The kitchen counter extends to the exterior, enhancing the sense of openness to the outside. Large overhanging soffits and horizontal cedar siding keep the house from overpowering the view and help it settle into the landscape. An expansive maple floor and white ceiling reinforce the horizontal sense of space. Phil Bond Photography

The front garden is the first thing visitors see, and even a small garden can make a lasting first impression. When landscaping this garden we designed a fairly simple layout, but we used sweeping lines and circular flower beds to achieve a more interesting space. As there is no lawn this garden is fairly low maintenance and remains looking neat all year round. The curving flower beds step down to the main focal point, a collection of circular flower beds surrounded by stone blocks. The flower beds are filled with a selection of colourful flowers in soft pinks and vivid reds. Beautiful dry stone walls create the retaining walls of the flower beds and add a hint of rustic charm, while the simplicity of the space helps it to look contemporary. A lattice fence surrounds the perimeter and adds privacy without obstructing light into the garden. Along with the stunning flower beds there is a sizable drive along allowing this to be a practical yet stylish garden. This bold front garden certainly adds kerb appeal to this property.

A new entrance was added to give ability to drive in and out. The lawn was replaced and a semi-circular border edged with box hedging and planted with 3 multi-stemmed Birches gives some privacy from the road and adds interest. The trees are up-lit with solar powered spotlights.

This retaining wall project in inspired by our Travertina Raw stone. The Travertina Raw collection has been extended to a double-sided, segmental retaining wall system. This product mimics the texture of natural travertine in a concrete material for wall blocks. Build outdoor raised planters, outdoor kitchens, seating benches and more with this wall block. This product line has enjoyed huge success and has now been improved with an ultra robust mix design, making it far more durable than the natural alternative. This is a perfect solution in freeze-thaw climates. Check out our website to shop the look! https://www.techo-bloc.com/shop/walls/travertina-raw/

The Torii gate is actually the arbor structure (and not the swinging gate inside the arbor). This project utilized clear Western Red Cedar for the fence and arbor, and ipe (also known as Brazilian Walnut) for the swinging gate. The swinging gate is constructed using mortise & tenon joinery.
