A Backyard Paradise in Nun’s Island

This Nun’s Island backyard is surrounded by homes at close proximity, there was no privacy! We designed the pool and landscaping to give the homeowners a sleek and very private setting. To do this, we built a natural stone wall at the back of the pool with three water curtains. This not only gives a beautiful look, it also creates a soothing sound as the water falls into the pool. The wall’s horizontal lines complement the pool’s long shape, and the addition of the hanging branches and leaves from a nearby tree softens the straight edges to form a warm, zen-like backyard ambiance.

In this project, we combined nature with a modern element to create a gentle outdoor space limited only by the suburbia surrounding it.

Using a Planter Box and a Redesigned Driveway to Transform a Kirkland Home’s Front Lawn

Groupe Paramont kirkland Driveway-Walkway-Planters box project using Techo-Bloc's 80mm smooth StoneThis Kirkland home had a short and narrow driveway, barely allowing two cars to be parked, and a huge slope problem in their front yard.
We increased the width of the driveway on the left side and incorporated a walkway into the driveway that leads up to the entrance steps to give the driveway even more width and continuity of materials. This was all created using Techo-Bloc’s 80 mm Blu Smooth stones in Chestnut Brown colour. To correct the front yard slope issue, we built a huge planter box in front of the wide porch. The planter box was built with Techo-Bloc’s Semma stones which compliments the driveway, walkway and porch surfaces.
The huge planter box has a contemporary, tailored and layered look. We planted a Globe Boxwood hedge which has a rich dark green colour along the back and a Dwarf Golden Barberry hedge that has a bright lime colour in front of it to give it a layered look with contrasting colours. We left some space along the front of the box so the home owners can choose annual flowers so they can enjoy a different theme every year!
The work that was done to this front yard made such a dramatic difference to the curb appeal of this home.
