After living for several years in this gorgeous home with a fantastic outdoor space, the homeowners decided that they wanted to totally redo and enhance their outdoor living area. The designer worked very closely with the homeowner to discuss their ideas and collaborate on the design. It was also critical to work around the installation of a new swim spa that the homeowners wanted to incorporate into the space. They wanted the landscape design as a whole to be very clean with a minimalist and modern feel.
The paver patio portion of this design is truly a work of art. The design is bi-level with two separate spaces. Each paver patio area also has its own fire table and the lower-level area also has a water fountain feature to balance out the fire table and provide a soothing sound feature as well. The upper level paver patio is more covered if the sun is blazing and the lower level is more open for those cooler fall nights to gather around the fire table. The steps between levels are also lit with soft, subtle landscape lighting that provides safety for the stairs and also highlights the architectural elements on the paver patio. Everything was topped off with fresh plantings to soften the stone elements and make the project complete.
What Our Client Said
"Prior to contacting Michigan Landscape Professionals we had spoken with numerous other companies. We have a tricky site which in my mind meant we had the opportunity to do something really spectacular. As an Architectural designer myself, I have very high standards and am okay with thinking outside the box.
After my initial meeting with Craig I finally felt like I had found someone who had a true eye for design. He was able to see the potential in the site and was willing to work with the landscape and not against it. His initial concept was so different than any others that we had seen and it was spectacular!
The turn around for quotes and the breakdown of line items was impressive. The actual construction was much the same. Hugo and his crew were a power house! They worked like crazy and were absolutely meticulous with every detail. There were no shortcuts and they went the extra mile to make sure everything was done right.
I was speechless at the end of the project. I am typically very good at visualizing design concepts considering that is my profession, but I had no idea how beautiful the final product was going to be.
I truly could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. I would recommend Michigan Landscape Professionals to anyone who is looking for a one of a kind, impeccable product with a professional and timely process."
