Outdoor Structures Make Spaces More Functional, & Inviting
Landscape and garden structures such as arbors, pergolas, trellises and fences are as individual as the homeowner and serve as points of interest in the landscape.
Whether they are simple or elaborate, these landscaping structures can draw us from one outdoor space to another, moving us through gardens or from the front yard to the back yard.
Use arbors as arches to mark a passageway.
Design an overhead pergola “roof” to create shade over a patio.
Trellises covered with vines or flowers can stand alone or cling to the side of a building.
Form & Function: Fences, Decks & Gazebos
Fences make excellent decorative boundaries, usually with details matching a home or landscape.
Decks extend indoor spaces, giving you more room for entertaining and relaxation.
Gazebos beckon as a destination point in the landscape.
Soften The Edges With Vines & Vertical Gardens
All of these structures can support climbing vines and shrubs. Vertical gardens soften the hard edges of the structures and add to the colorful floral displays in any garden.
Live Outdoors With Comfort & Ease
The latest trends for outdoor rooms have expanded to include fireplaces, fire pits, entertainment centers, kitchens, and bars. We have moved beyond the simple deck or back patio. Each outdoor living space is as unique as the family and frequently is an extension of the indoor spaces.
Patios & Walkways
Stunning Stone, Brick & Paver Patios
If there's one thing that distinguishes Calgary Lawn Solutions Landscaping from any other landscape design and construction companies, it's the beautiful design and flawless construction of our patios and hardscapes. Whether they are made of natural stone, classic brick, or concrete pavers, walkways in your yard should be easy to travel. After all, it's all about the journey more than the destination.
Calgary Lawn Solutions' landscaping crews are trained by professionals with 20 years or more of experience building hardscapes. Translation: our crews know their stuff. Whether you prefer the elegance of natural stone, the timelessness of classic brick, or the practical beauty of concrete pavers, we'll help you build the walkway or patio of your dreams.
Landscape Walkway Design Considerations
Width. A landscape walkway should be wide enough for two people to walk side-by-side. Four feet is the minimum for a front entry walkway, but 5 feet is better. Secondary, walkways can be narrower depending on where they are in the yard.
Small yards benefit from straight walkways. Curved sidewalks add interest but are more informal. Don’t overdo curves. That will take away from the overall look. So, consider the style of the home. Do you need to emphasize the front entry? Then perhaps a straight walkway is best. Putting a walkway through a large garden? A meandering walkway in your landscape could feel just right.
Materials. When deciding on walkway materials, take your cue from the home. Red brick? Pavers close in color will make it seem as if the walkway has always been there. Natural Stone? Steppers? Gravel? Poured Concrete? Keep in mind that poured concrete or pavers are more solid and safer to walk on than steppers or gravel.
Landscape Design Elements
The award-winning landscaping features low-maintenance grasses, shrubs, and trees. Reducing the lawn area by 50% and installing zone-specific irrigation minimizes the amount of water necessary to keep the landscape healthy. Sustainable landscape design which incorporates boulder walls, terraces, rain gardens and a permeable paver system to capture 98% of the runoff from the roof and other hard surfaces. The level areas and gardens hold the water long enough for it to penetrate the ground. A special type of permeable paver system can provide a fast-draining base for mature trees, leading to a reduced heating and cooling costs by providing shade in summer, and protection from wind in winter.
Southview Design can create a sustainable plan for your landscape. With the right elements, your landscape will have a positive impact on water quality, energy efficiency, and the community.
