The inspiration for this Florida driveway's paving pattern was taken from the classic shapes of the parterre gardens of Versailles. The formality has been deconstructed by ArquitectonicaGEO and reassembled into a careful arrangement of salt-treated, poured-in-place concrete pavers that appear to float in a pool of crushed seashells and native coral rock.
Stone paving from the screened porch extends the terrace of a Massachusetts home on five acres and links interior and exterior spaces. The American Society of Landscape Architects award-winning design, by Stephen Stimson Associates Landscape Architects and landscape contractor R.P. Marzilli, enabled the family to explore and engage with the environment.
This soiree-worthy space, which also could provide greenspace for kids to play, is surrounded by bricks and mortar that match the Georgia home's exterior. The bold brick border, with two lines of brick laid straight on their sides in a double soldier course pattern, is designed by Landscape Studio.
Red-blend pavers play off the roof's color in this Minnesota driveway by Southview Design. The pavers' palette isn't the only unique aspect in the design of the hill driveway. An inlay of pavers widens toward the bottom of the driveway.
A tiered paver patio by Southview Design in Minnesota creates space for dining areas, a bar area and a fire pit, and is accessorized with colorful materials. A modular block retaining wall also was used to frame the area.
Thyme is the beautiful, soft greenery growing between this segmented paver path. In the gardens on either side, drought-tolerant succulents and grasses provide a wide range of complementary and contrasting colors.
Think of how your pavers can connect areas, such as a pool deck, fire pit and bar. This Roswell, Ga., outdoor space is designed by J&J Landscaping and Neptune Pools and uses Belgard pavers with a cobblestone effect manufactured by Georgia Masonry Supply of Atlanta.
