Backyards are more often than not neglected by home builders. Leaving the backyard to the homeowners, builders often plop down a small concrete landing pad (we can’t bear to call it a patio) and a few steps or stairs and call it a day. Such was the case at this Herriman, Utah home. You’ll note they could barely fit four chairs on the 10×10 concrete slab, much less a table or lounging area.
We are pleased this family called Archadeck of Salt Lake so we could take their backyard from barren to a luxurious retreat with TimberTech decking and a Belgard patio combination.
TimberTech Cascading Stairs
With a level backyard only a few steps down from the house, we opted for a design that includes a cascading TimberTech Terrain staircase and landing in Brown Oak flowing effortlessly onto the Belgard patio. The three-sided cascading stairs provide easy access to the entire yard, a strategic design for the corner location of the backdoor. With a white low-maintenance railing to match the fencing, the new space ties in perfectly to existing features.
With the addition of TimberTech riser lights into the stairs and landing, nighttime use will be safe and effortless. The ambiance created with the lighting will create a lovely scene for those perfect evenings under the starry Utah sky.
Herriman Patio Designer
The Belgard Holland pavers in Toscano were a perfect choice to complement the stucco siding on this West Valley area home. The varying colors of chocolate, tan, and rust laid in a herringbone pattern add luxurious high-end design to the previously empty space. We opted for a curvilinear patio design to provide a soft touch and added drama to the individual paver’s clean square lines. The patio offers plenty of space for grilling, dining, and lounging, simultaneously. Perfect for spending the warm months in the backyard.
The transformation of this backyard is incredible. From a 10×10 concrete slab that was rendered mostly useless by rickety old wooden stairs, to a luxurious TimberTech staircase and a 340 square foot Belgard paver patio – these homeowners will feel like they added an entire room onto their home.
