Built in patio – day vs night

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:52 AM by Administrator

We designed and built this paver patio and stone wall for a North Andover family into their sloped backyard.  The stonewall was built with Estate style wallstones while the patio was built with Treo style pavers.  Both the wallstones and pavers were made by Unilock.  This additional seating area / private patio will have a portable firepit placed on it in the future.

As you can see from these two pictures, there is a dramatic difference to the look of a stone wall and patio when it is illuminated with the appropriate light fixtures.  For this family, we installed lights directly into the wall so that the perimeter of the patio would be illuminated and we installed one path light by the steps as a way to make the transition up/down the steps safer and easier.  Because our goal was not to create a spotlight effect in the patio, we installed ambient lighting on the back lawn and hill area so that the effect of light is throughout the yard and not just inside the patio.
