This was a large landscaping project installed in River Forest, Illinois. The homeowners were not happy with the curb appeal of their new house.
The existing concrete driveway was removed and replaced with a driveway constructed using reclaimed Chicago city street pavers. A special permeable base was laid below the new driveway structure. The old reclaimed bricks allowed ample space between them to create a modern permeable brick driveway structure.
The existing front concrete walkway as also removed. It was replaced with a much wider clay paver sidewalk with a dynamic sweeping curved design. This made the entrance approach for visitors much more welcoming and interesting. A front yard seating area surface was also built to allow space for a outdoor bench and chair where the family could enjoy the improved planting beds and the grandmother could sit and watch the kids play in the front yard when she was visiting.
The existing small concrete stoop and step at the front door was removed and extended to make the entrance more attractive. The added area along with the area outside the doorway was covered with mortared flagstone edges with brick.
The front of the home was transformed with the hardscaping installation.
