Concrete Paver – Commercial (Less than 15,000 square feet) Contractor: FS Landscaping Contractors (Furlong, Pa.) Manufacturer: Belgard Designer: Brian Stover, FS Landscaping Contractors The fire pit construction began with excavation into a hillside along the edge of the 18th hole and clubhouse pond. To maximize the area, a custom curved composite deck cantilevered over the edge of the pond, and was constructed flush to the patio and fire pit lounge to compliment the curved deck. The fire pit includes a wirelessly controlled gas unit and was custom built using Antique wall stone. A retaining/sitting wall, pillars and boulders complete the retention of hillside. Plant material was installed to soften the hardscape and provide spring and summer color. Lighting was installed to complete this outdoor living space for guests to enjoy into the evening hours. Concrete Paver – Commercial (More than 15,00 square feet) Contractor: Fred Adams Paving Co. (Morrisville, N.C.) Manufacturer: Hanover Architectural Products Designer: Stewart Landscape Situated on five acres and measuring 100,000 square feet, the newly repositioned building reflects a banking culture of transparency, longevity and enterprising use of technol- ogy. The horizontal and vertical zones are housed in two areas organized off the internal "Main Street" of the facility, creating synergies of diverse activity. With a fully integrated transit shelter, employees access the workplace through public transportation, eliminating the need for expansive surface parking. The facility also features an integrated parking garage. An outdoor courtyard includes space for employee lunches, a zone for private calls, an outdoor venue for informal meetings and large catered events. Segmental Retaining Wall – Residential Contractor: Hedge Landscape LLC (Columbus, Ohio) Manufacturer: Reading Block Designer: Hedge Landscape LLC When the homeowners started the design process with Hedge Land- scape, they had a blank canvas that included a 12-foot grade change. A multi-level patio design used the AB Europa Collection from Allan Block with Abbey Blend patterned retaining walls to solve the grade change with terraced walls. A large raised patio area and a flowing stairway with landings offered a smooth transition to the larger areas below. The next two patio levels include an in-ground pool, outdoor kitchen/bar, fireplace and a custom cedar open-air roof system. The kitchen/bar was built using the AB Courtyard Collection – a two- sided patio wall system. The bar countertops, fireplace areas and footrest were custom cut out of natural limestone pieces to accent the walls below. The hand-laid masonry fireplace and chimney were veneered with natural stone. A bluestone walkway leads directly down to the main steps of the pool. This patio used thermal cut bluestone with a soldier course of Oxford tumbled pavers.
