Techo-Bloc Walk – A Dramatic First Impression

Heinen Landscape recently worked with a customer looking to achieve a dramatic, yet durable and maintenance-friendly walkway to the side of the home – which had been converted to become the long, narrow home’s primary entrance.

Although a sidewalk and grass are the usual choices for a front walkway, the side entrance and nearby fence created an opportunity to create a more intimate and beautiful and even a more dramatic transition from the outside world to the inside world.

Heinen team of landscape professionals worked with the customer to create an installation that combined the beauty of Techo-Bloc landscape stone with custom outdoor lighting – and even a series of serene bubbler-fountains. The combination proved to be quite engaging, creating a warm, welcoming entrance to the West Plaza home – not to mention the practical safety aspect that a well-lit walkway provides.

The customer and Heinen considered a wide variety of Techo-Bloc products when planning the installation. As concrete paver and masonry manufacturers, Techo-Bloc’s mission is to design and create the finest quality hardscape and masonry products in the industry. For durability, resistance to the elements, along with their unique color and style choices, it’s hard to beat Techo-Bloc!The installation of three bubbler fountains along the Techo-Bloc pathway added an interesting visual
feature along with the subtle but calming sounds of bubbling water – almost like that of a running stream. The addition of custom professionally designed and installed lighting not only made the pathway safer, but also provide dramatic illumination of the walkway, fountains and home.

The completed project was a hit. According to the homeowner, “I’m very pleased with the transformation. With the right plan, products and installation, the walk was transformed from being a mundane pathway to becoming a dramatic entryway to our home.”

A few reasons why you might want to consider Tech-Bloc products for your hardscape installation:
