Mediterranean Estate in the Great Northwest
This family wanted semi-formal, Mediterranean landscaping to match the design of their brand new home. The clients knew they wanted a water feature, hot tub area, fire pit, see-through fencing to preserve the views, and expansive open lawn areas.
After the design was finalized, construction took 12 weeks to complete. The entire project was completed on time and on budget at $150-200,000 in total. Concrete, particularly stamped concrete, can be a long term maintenance concern. It must be periodically stripped and re-sealed in order to maintain the color and sharpness of the stamped design. Due to this recurring concern among many of our clients, Alderwood has been using unsealed Belgard Pavers almost exclusively on the majority of our projects for the past several years. Belgard Pavers are maintenance-free and remain beautiful for decades.
Our team’s design incorporates a formal circle driveway and entrance to the home. The formal front yard is blended into and balanced with a softer, more organic design in the backyard and perimeter of the estate.
