Our featured project is located on Emerald Isle, NC and is one of the most ambitious and extensive residential landscaping projects that Yardworks has ever had the pleasure of designing and installing. Our team worked closely with both the homeowners and their builder during the design and installation phases of this project. With 2 large lots and a couple of ponds on the property that required excavation to transform the project our work encompassed several months. Team Yardworks began with the pond fountain (Casco) and pond pumps (Best Aquatic). The stone, rock and boulders that were used in and surrounding the ponds were hand selected in the North Carolina mountains. Once they were delivered the project was underway and a waterfall was also added to the design. There are many retaining walls that help to define the landscape and hardscape spaces within this project. The walls are Techo Bloc Baltimore wall in champlain grey. With the walls completed Yardworks began on the installation of the Marmiro stone Grano silver travertine pool decking, patios and walkways along with the Orca marble pool coping that also includes the face of the infinity pool. The long and winding driveway and parking pads in front of the main living quarters and the guest quarters came next. Utilizing Techo Bloc 3-piece Eva sandalwood and 6”X13” champlain grey border the driveway came to life adding curb appeal to this massive project. Custom manufactured gates and fencing were built and installed by Fences Unlimited. A Hunter irrigation system and deep well were installed by Coastal Turfgrass Systems.
The dock over Bogue Sound that offers beautiful vistas and sunsets has a custom- built gas firepit using Techo Bloc Baltimore wall block and Orca marble caps. During the construction of the gas outdoor fireplace, we used veneer stone, cultured stone hearth and caps along with a custom cut natural stone mantel hand selected in the NC mountains to set the tone of the outdoor living space. Since our clients are avid golfers this project also features two golf holes with tee boxes and putting greens. The putting greens are synthetic turf that was installed by Yardworks. Low voltage outdoor lighting by FX Luminaire using LED bulbs and solid copper fixtures was installed by Lightworks a division of Yardworks. As the job progressed, team Yardworks installed all of the large plant material including several sabal palms, large native trees and shrubbery. Once the project and building were completed our outdoor living space designer took over and created a tropical vibe around the house purchasing Campania containers and transforming the pool deck into a Mediterranean paradise. Our clients are over the moon with the way that their home’s outdoor space brought their vision to life.
