Competing against many other great projects across the upper Midwest, Prairie Path Group stood apart from the rest. Thank you judges and Unilock for voting PPG as the 2016 Best EnduraColor Plus Project featuring the beautiful Richcliff pebble taupe and dawn mist blend pavers. Judges appreciated the complementary material and color choices, as well as the great use of the compact space. They adored the use of of the structure to make the space feel more private yet still open. Give us a call and maybe next season your project will be featured with another award.
One of several backyard getaways completed this season in the Village of Western Springs. The combination of an arborvitae hedge and architectural panels make it an alternative privacy screen between lots. The patio features the Unilock material Bristol Valley steel mountain with a high contrast accent in Unilock Copthorne basalt.
A new walkway installed in Orland Park. The horizontal accented Prairie style Architecture of this home allowed us to install a new bluestone walkway that played off this design aesthetic. The large full range bluestone slabs are accented with 6″ bands of bluestone. The bands undulate as you approach the front door adding an interesting flow to the entrance of this home. The florescent coral impatiens offer a stark contrast to the deep bluestone. Contract Prairie Path Group for our super fresh design aesthetic!
The picture above is a new bluestone stoop for a classical limestone home in La Grange, IL. The clients selected a thermal blue bluestone, being, “bluestone that is cut like a loaf of bread, with each piece being the same thickness. It is essentially a gauged material. The sawing process requires a second step of thermaling or applying a flame to the surface. This ensures that the stones have a non-slip, consistent surface. Additionally, thermal bluestone pavers have a very uniform surface and are great for outdoor pool decks because the surface provides for solid traction when the stone gets wet. Combined with its more traditional blue color, thermal bluestone works well in both modern and more traditional settings.” With the addition of rotating the dimensional bluestone pattern on a 45˚ adding an interesting diamond pattern on the path to entrance of the home.
A finished bluestone patio is detailed with the bright neon green-yellow creeping jenny ground cover. The height of the sundown echinacea and pastel pinkish-purple are a nice complimenting color. Call Prairie Path Group for landscaping and outdoor living spaces. We’re more than happy to help you.
The completion of a gorgeous front walkway using Unilock Richcliff pebble taupe and dawn mist blend. “The modern yet elegant look of Richcliff will add a touch of class to any landscaping project. With an average compressive strength rating of up to 4 times the strength of conventional poured concrete, Richcliff is a virtually indestructible paver that will not split, crack or fade.”
Our first landscape job started earlier this month. We have a fun new construction sign that we will display at all of our under construction job sites. Keep and eye out for them and feel free to call the number on the sign to schedule your own landscape design work.
We have redesigned our residential under-construction stake. These laser-cut steel stakes will be powder-coated red and placed at the front yard of homes we are working at. Standing at approximately three feet tall, they will be a fun splash of color for a landscape bed. Because of this, our clients will be able to purchase these signs and use them as garden art.
Unilock has selected one of Prairie Path Group’s paver projects to be featured in the 2016 ‘Design to Connect’ Catalog. See our featured project on page 79, Artline Steel Mounting (Smooth Finish) with Copthorne (3 Color Blend) accents. “The long, clean lines of new Artline reflects an emerging trend to minimalist, modern outdoor designs. Look for Artline in an exclusive number of colors and textures that can be used separately or combined together to create graphic interest.”
