Hardscape Design, Hockessin, DE
This was one of Pro Image Landscaping's bigger projects that is located in Hockessin, Delaware. It was a hardscape/landscape project. We were among several companies bidding the job, but the customer got so frustrated because their designers wanted to sell him what they thought it should look like.
Landscape Lighting and Stairs Were a Few Additions
Who better than the home owner knows what they want? Once a budget was established, we began the first landscape/hardscape design plan. It went through only two revisions, a wider step landing to accommodate the exit out of the kitchen french doors, landscape lighting and a few stairs that led to the beautifully wooded area the property was along the rear of the backyard.
We service Wilmington, Newark and Hockessin Delaware as well as Garnet Valley, West Chester, Chadds Ford and Kennett Square Pennsylvania and neighboring cities in DE, PA.
We Used Concrete Pavers and Retaining Wall Block
Over 200 tons of stone, soil, pavers and hardscape materials went into this project. It took our crew a total of four weeks to complete from start to finish. The exit out of the kitchen had steps that allowed for carrying food and drinks out to the patio area. The wider steps create more footing space so you don't trip down the steps. Bullnose went on all the steps for a smooth look. A slightly tumbled concrete paver was used for the entire floor area and an aged look retaining wall block were used to create a main partition, seat walls around the firepit area.
A Beautiful Patio With Landscape Lighting Was The Final Result
All the clients' wants and needs were integrated and Pro Image accomplished the project on time and for the price quoted. The final result was a beautiful three tiered patio with landscape lighting built into the hardscape walls, steps and surrounding the perimeter of the patio where it meets the landscaping.
The next step in this project that was not in the budget at the time is the addition of landscape lighting installed high above in the branches of the large oak trees. This created an effect called moonlighting and it looks AWESOME! It looks like the moon is shining through the tree branches and is a very dramatic effect.
