The Landscape Creations design center display features Unilock brick paving and retaining wall systems, all types of natural stone, many different varieties of plants, pond and pondless water features, as well as Kichler low voltage landscape lighting.
Lombard Design Center Display Challenge
The biggest challenge we faced when installing the display was deciding how to show all of the commonly used landscaping elements (brick, stone, plants, lights, etc) in a harmonious and flowing layout. Our goal was to make the display feel as if it were actually your home. Maintaining this overall concept, without making the layout seem like a ‘brick yard,’ was our top priority.
Design Center Display Solution
We established three patio areas using Patterned Bluestone at the front, Townhall permeable pavers at the center patio, and Bristol Valley at the back. Connecting these three patio areas was accomplished with stone pathways, stone steps, and brick paved walkways using Artline and Brussels Premier brick pavers. The integration of stone outcroppings, Mossy Fieldstone, and Holey Boulders added to ‘naturalizing’ the surrounds.
Many different ornamental trees, evergreens, flowering shrubs, ornamental grasses, and perennials are used to ‘soft scape.’ This type of display gives homeowners the ability to see how plants will look at maturity.
The landscape design display has low voltage landscape lightings including accent, wall wash, path, and downlights to enhance the setting through popular low voltage lighting techniques.
