BEDFORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE PATIO PROJECT
This patio project in Bedford, NH was challenging in many ways. Lack of access, and a severe slope required significant grading and the use of several retaining walls to create this backyard outdoor living space. Materials used on the project were pavers and retaining wall block manufactured by Genest Concrete in Sanford, ME. The pavers in the patio area are Earth Blend Acadia Stone. A double sailor course of Baxter Stone was used as a border, and inside the Baxter Stone runs a course of 9 x 9 Acadia pavers. The patio itself, is a random pattern. The sitting walls, retaining walls, and pillars are Earth Blend 6-pc Highland Stone. Granite steps were used to create level walking pads in the Baxter Stone paver walkway, from the patio up to the driveway. Eleven LED Kichler Nighlighting fixtures were installed under the wall caps and along the walkway to provide ambiance and safety for evening activities. Inch-and-a-half Riverstone was used under the deck and in the privacy hedge bed, for low maintenance and aesthetics. Six foot Arborvitae were used to create a living hedge and privacy fence beside the patio. Sod was installed in all of the disturbed lawn areas.
