I received a good kick in the pants today to switch my website from Typepad to SquareSpace. How do you like it? I can't take all the credit...Infomatix helped with the switch (thanks very much!) There are a few images that still need to be transferred over but, for the most part, we're live with Square Space. I think I'm going to like it here!
Tom and I just completed this design and I presented it to the clients last night. They LOVED it! While we designed their whole property, I zoomed in on the front entrance so you can take a closer look.
It has Kota black sandstone tile in the center, concrete unilock pavers as a soldier course around the walkway 'pads' to give the walkway some extra stability and the curved steps up to the front entrance are granite. Not polished granite mind you, that would be too slippery. This is flamed granite which gives the surface a little 'tooth'.
The planting plan is quite elaborate as the homeowners both love being outside. Wonderful clients to work with!
"Even though we always educate our clients about the real costs, we prefer to phase the installation over a period of years [if the price is not in the budget] we've just finished phase 8 of a project we started in 1981. I'd rather my clients phase the project than compromise on quality"
