Patio adjacent to concrete deck

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 7:06 AM by Administrator

We expanded the patio around the pool for this Middleton, MA family by building a paver patio that is at the same height of the existing concrete pool patio.  The built-in pool has a concrete deck around it but there was an area between the concrete and the house that would get people’s feet dirty on their way to the pool.  That area was improved by having us build a paver patio right up to the edge of the concrete deck.  The area now provides for clean access to the pool and provides a good spot for the grill to be stored and used as it is away from everyone who is using the pool.

Brick step in Ipswich

Posted in Masonry, Uncategorized at 6:36 AM by Administrator

The bricks on this old front stoop were cracking and falling off of the step thus this Ipswich family needed to repair their front step.  The base of the steps was in good shape so we just install a new brick façade and a solid granite tread for the landing part of the step.  The solid piece of granite will help keep water from getting behind and beneath the bricks which will help this step last for many years/decades.

Brick patio in Rowley

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:23 AM by Administrator

This Rowley family had a pile of bricks laying around after we replaced their front walkway with pavers.  Rather than discarding these bricks, we repurposed them and used them to build this backyard brick patio.

Outdoor Kitchen

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:28 AM by Administrator

We designed and built an outdoor kitchen for this Ipswich, MA family.  The kitchen area includes a built-in grill along with 2 drawers and an oversized counter.  The counter is granite that we hand selected and had custom cut to fit.  The gas grill is directly piped into the home’s natural gas so the homeowner’s will never run out of gas or have a tank to refill.  There was some coordination required with the plumber as the gas lines had to be installed and inspected prior to us building the stonework and inspected after the plumber connected the gas lines to the grill.

Front Walkway in Rowley

Posted in Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:42 AM by Administrator

We built this paver walkway for a Rowley family at a fairly significant pitch so that the family could avoid a step in the walkway and the walkway could remain at the same grade as the existing landscape.  There are steps from the driveway up to the walkway and more steps from the walkway up to the house thus we built this walkway to meet all of these various grades and we rounded the walkway in the area in front of the steps to the front door as this was more aesthetically pleasing.
