Some of the other features the homeowners requested were a terrace or step-up area on one side of the pool where they plan to add a future pavilion as a shelter. In order to build this, we needed extra base material and used Belgard Anchor Diamond wall blocks and cap stones to create the step. The inside of the step we used a tumbled and textured paver from Belgard called "Bergerac". There were also 2 paver circles that I suggested as a design element in the paver pool deck near the step-up and also by the new arbor. These circles also used the "Bergerac" paver style.
The remaining paver deck was all made from Belgard's "Lafitt" style of paver. Once all the work was done, we applied paver sealer to all the pavers, step-up, decorative wall, and flagstone wall around the statue. Another feature they asked for was a painted arbor. This was made with pressure-treated lumber, set in footers, then left to dry out before we came back to paint it white to match the house. We did the same thing with a shower feature they requested. This arch can be seen in the photos and will be hooked up by a plumber in the near future. They wanted the shower feature in order to wash off any sand from their white sand beach that we also added. We brought a truck-load of sand in to make this beach feel like they're really on the Florida coastline.
