A poured concrete entry hub. Once shaded by a majestic Oak and lushly planted. Now a sun baked expanse of heaved concrete. The home is also in close proximity to a highway, resulting in road noise that the homeowner would like to minimize.
Remove the existing concrete and replace with a combination of tumbled pavers and oversize limestone flagstones to reflect the rustic setting. The circular paving area doubles as an entry courtyard and flow-through area to rear garden, garage and main house entrance. Planting, when mature, will create a sense of canopy and space transition as people pass through to the rear garden. A pondless waterfall is situated as a focal point as you approach the entrance from the driveway. The resulting splashing water helps to drown out the roar of the highway.
