Lennox Masonry: Another Completed Project
The following project was located in Saanich, BC and involved excavating a section of the backyard in order to properly grade it prior to installing a flagstone patio and stone retaining walls. The homeowners were interested in creating a space in which they could entertain guests and enjoy the view of the inlet.
The patio consists of San Juan flagstone which is quarried and cut right here on Vancouver Island, in the Port Renfrew area. The homeowners opted for a more traditional look which involved larger mortar joints and less shaping of the stones themselves.
The stone retaining wall may just be the last of its kind, as the "Grey Ice" stone which was used to build it is no longer available (except as a road-base). The wall was also built with a more traditional appearance in mind and is capped with the same San Juan flagstone as the patio which we uniformly cut. The cap can also provide an extra seating area.
We also had the pleasure of adding in a unique, custom feature (our main signature) which utilizes rough-cut cedar, driftwood, and a variety of rocks and stones found here on Vancouver Island. The feature was installed in the centre of the wall as a focal point, with the Brentwood Bay inlet directly behind it.
