WORDS Mina Phillips

When homeowner Christy decided to have a louvre roof installed on her Stonefields property, she initially had planned to have it carried out through a supplier. After hearing about the comprehensive project management system that Zones landscaping offers, Christy’s decision was made. She entrusted Zones landscaping specialist Kate Ryan with the job of converting her outdoor space into a well designed social zone and family area.

To make the most of their outdoor space, Christy decided to extend the concrete patio to allow for extra functionality.

“The louvre was initially over the smaller existing patio but we increased the patio, adding in a concrete section”, tells Kate. “We also made over the full length of the back of the house.”

The patio extension proved to be difficult, but worth it, according to Kate.

“The concrete patio was challenging to match and join onto the existing patio”, explains Kate. “The colour evened out but the join lines were a bit annoying so I suggested an outdoor rug which Christy got - it is perfect for covering the join and making the area nice for the kids to play on.”

From there, Christy chose to add LED lights to the louvre.

“Christy felt adding LED lighting was a great call, even with the cost, as it added extra ambience and usability to the space at night”, tells Kate.
