At Archadeck of Columbus, we have been eager to show off these photos. Every now and then we design and build a project that is so transformative you can hardly believe you’re seeing the same home in the Before and After shots. This combination patio, outdoor kitchen and pergola in Pickerington, OH, is one such project.
In the Before photo, you can see that the homeowners had a small concrete patio outside the second set of doors, with a table and chairs—and that they love plants. They have lots of plants, including many in pots on the patio and along the back of the house.
In the After photos, the homeowners have plenty of room for their all of their plants. This new paver patio is so big, they may even need to add more plants. And what a beautiful patio it is …
The pavers selected by the homeowners are Unilock’s Bristol Valley pavers in the steel mountain color, which is a beautifully subtle color blend. The rounded pavers along the edges of the walkway leading from the first door to the main patio area, and around the planter area by the wall, are Unilock Brussels Fullnose pavers. These rounded pavers in a lighter color provide contrast and soften the edges of the curved walkway and planter.
Bordering this elegant patio is a sweeping, curved outdoor kitchen with granite countertops. We used stacked stone to build the surround for the appliances. Notice the contrasting color insets for the granite countertops in the “eat in” kitchen and bar area.
Flanking the second set of doors at the far end of the patio are two retaining walls built with Unilock Brussels Limestone. We used Unilock Ledgestone on the top of these retaining walls for a striking contrast.
And the pergola over the bar area! This has to be one of our favorite pergolas. It’s made of cedar timbers that play with the sunlight and cast dynamic shadows. It defines the dining and bar area dramatically, and it will provide the diners with some shade.
We think you’ll agree that this Unilock paver patio, outdoor kitchen and pergola combination outdoor living space has completely transformed the home. The back yard went from a plant hangout to an extraordinary venue for entertaining in elegant style.
