For this project, Doug’s Construction Company was brought in to install the entire hardscaping, front and back, at this beautiful Naperville, Illinois home.
It is extra special when we are asked to build new landscape features throughout a property. It gives Doug and the crew the satisfaction of helping transform the homeowner’s entire outdoor space.
Beginning at the front, a antiqued paving brick entrance walkway leads to the house. A well-paced step and landing was built on a poured concrete base. This makes the construction more solid and durable and is something that some other landscaping companies might not do.
The long front stoop area was covered with the same paving brick that is used on the sidewalks. Natural stone treads were used on the steps. This all brings a beautiful looking finish to the home’s front facade and adds curb appeal.
Paved brick sidewalks lead visitors from the front yard along the side of the house and to the back. A stacked limestone low garden wall contains the planting beds and adds a natural finish to the paving surfaces.
The backyard construction included a generous family entertaining patio area. The tumbled paving brick pattern is used throughout.
The centerpiece of the design features a outdoor cooking and eating area. The structure is built with mortared natural stone with a granite countertop. Built-in appliances include a grilling and cooking unit and refrigerator. All installation was handled by Doug’s Construction.
Finally, there is a large area of the brick patio that accommodates outdoor furniture for relaxing in the sunshine or by the built-in fire pit. Natural stone outcropping can be seen used as accents throughout the landscape.
