Coastal IncHardscape project ties together beauty of Maine with rustic outdoor sitting area

Surrounded by a forest of green, this patio, fire feature and outdoor kitchen area provides a welcoming spot for relaxing year round. For a lasting hardscape against the climate conditions of the Northeast, Coastal Landscape Construction & Snow Services started by excavating the original asphalt walkway and patio area before installing suitable aggregates for a sturdy base.

Coastal Pic 4“Working with the homeowner to determine the materials, look and layout of the living area, Coastal Inc. sought to create a space that would match the beauty of the home and the property on which it was going to sit,” says Nathan Ochsner, Coastal Inc.’s landscape designer.

To keep with the project’s organic feel, the crew installed patios and walkways using irregular bluestone with sawn edges. These areas were then bordered with Unilock Cassova in Beechwood color that created an accent that tied in with the colors of the vertical work.

The fireplace and outdoor kitchen were veneered with mosaic Colonial tan thin sawn veneer. Completing the uniquely Maine ambience, they used Deere Isle granite for the countertops, hearth, caps and lintel pieces.
