1st Place Patio
Patios and pool decks all set at different elevations, connected by steps constructed with block and pavers, combine to create a stunning backyard landscape. Pavers are used as coping for the pool, spa and steps. Tumbled pavers installed in a random pattern are used throughout the patios.
2nd Place Patios
A combination of tumbled pavers and Celtik Wall retaining walls are installed at this beautiful home overlooking a lake. Celtik Wall is used as a retaining wall, steps, a fire pit and a barbeque. The split antiqued texture of the Celtik Wall ties in with the tumbled four piece paver pattern. This outdoor living area allows the owners to spend a lot of their time enjoying the Arizona weather.
2nd Place Driveway
Tumbled pavers in a random pattern are installed with a double standard border in this large driveway. The large driveway is broken up with bands that are also used in the wagon wheel around the water feature in the front. The contrasting paver textures give a unique appearance to this driveway.
1st Place Swimming Pools
A natural stone paver from Nevada is installed in a running bond pattern and a marble bullnose coping is used around the pool and sunken bar area. The natural stone has a wide range of color. The simplicity of the stone and the laying pattern all create a clean, simple but beautiful appearance.
2nd Place Swimming Pools
Artistic Pavers installed on a diamond pattern are installed in the pool and patio area. Water runs over the Artistic pool coping and smaller paver coping sizes are used on the top of the walls. The Artistic pavers work great with the Arizona sun and the different sizes give the owner great flexibility in design.
2nd Place Specialty Paving
Over 5,000 square feet of Bluestone is used in the front entrance, sidewalks, patio and pool area. The Bluestone colors and textures are used in a combination of sizes throughout the yard. Stepping stones connect patios and brick and concrete pavers are used in the driveway and patios. All the products combine to give the home the old world charm that the owner was looking for.
