One of our Landscape Architects envisioned this landscaping project in Mequon, Wisconsin. The project is a complete renovation that includes bluestone patio and walks, shade structure, retaining walls, landscape lighting and plantings. This project was implemented by our talented crews of landscapers, who take enormous pride in their work.
The patio was constructed using tumbled bluestone pavers and Germantown paver border supplied by Halquist Stone Company. The new design creates a unified feel, with individual gathering spaces defined by careful placement of plantings and border stone. The informal curves and rounded patios establish a soothing environment in which to unwind and host parties. In addition to the large main patio, a smaller breakfast patio sits adjacent to the kitchen allowing for more intimate gatherings.
Custom built shade structures provide relief from the strong afternoon sun and add comfort to the main gathering space. Using Cedar lumber ensures that the pergola will last for decades and allows the option of staining or painting in the future.
By redesigning the front walk we created a stronger sense of entry, leading visitors in a more direct path to the front door. By using the same stone throughout the project, the design stays consistent.
The F/X Luminaire landscape lighting system furthers the elegance of the project by adding warmth, safety and security.
We used Weathered Holey Boulders for the retaining walls and stone outcroppings provided by Eden Stone Company. This limestone material has a unique beauty all its own and adds to the natural feel of the project.
Plantings strategically located throughout the property add year-round interest through a mix of seasonal color, scent, variation in leaf texture and plant height.
Up High Productions put together a beautiful video of the project using drone footage. Special thanks to Sherry for sharing it with us! Check out the video and photos of the project below.
