Chic, Modern Pavers

Outdoor living spaces designed with modern pavers often take advantage of the minimal texture and expanded sizes of the pavers to make the space feel expansive and serene. A modern minimalist design style favors long, straight lines and clean, uncluttered textures. Typically these pavers feature natural yet subtle colors ranging from neutrals to bluish grays to warm earth tones and lighter shades that can adapt to any color scheme. 

Porcelain

If you want an outdoor space with panache, hard-wearing porcelain is a possibility. Available in a huge array of patterns, porcelain is considered by some to be the ultimate in chic modern design for busy outdoor kitchens, pool surrounds, and patios.

Permeable Pavers

Many styles of modern pavers and bricks are considered permeable, which can be a big advantage for both ecological and hardscape maintenance reasons. Creating a patio, walkway, or pool deck with permeable pavers will make the outdoor living space an area of elegance and beauty, last for generations, and contribute to a smaller eco-footprint. 

Wall Units

Modern retaining walls can be constructed using concrete blocks clad with natural stone or manufactured stone veneers. Consider accenting smooth surfaces with textured wall units for visual interest while keeping the color palette neutral so that the space retains a sense of serenity.

The same materials can be carried throughout other vertical elements such as grill stations, fire features, and water features.

Natural Stone

Modern design styles are typically dominated by straight lines—something that doesn’t exist in nature. However, natural stone (such as natural stone slabs used as a rustic walkway) can always be a wonderful addition to juxtapose the clean lines of a modern outdoor living area.  

Natural stone veneers can be applied to walls and other vertical surfaces, and constitute gorgeous accents in horizontal surfaces as well. The contrast between sleek modern pavers and the rugged texture of natural stone can be an exciting design tactic for any outdoor living space. 

Outdoor Entertainment

No more dragging clunky speakers outside! Outdoor entertainment has entered the 21st century with sleek, efficient, accessible, and smart systems that can create sound zones (louder in more dynamic areas and quieter in more relaxed areas) to complete an outdoor paradise.

Landscape Lighting

Say goodbye to harsh, overly bright floodlights. Rejuvenate a landscape with a thoughtful outdoor lighting scheme that creates the right atmosphere in each activity zone, while providing safety. We partner with trusted brands to ensure the largest selection of state-of-the-art outdoor lighting equipment.

Water Features

They’re elegant, simultaneously soothing and dramatic, and an endless source of entertainment: Water features can be as simple as a reflecting pool or as complex as a boulder-lined waterfall. Whatever your preference for water elements, we have the equipment and expertise to help you design and build one that will be a treasured addition to the landscape.
