2015 Unilock Awards of Excellence recognizes top designers and contractors for outstanding and skillful work in seven categories. Bret-Mar Landscape was a top finalist in Unilock’s before & after category. Projects in this category must display photos of the original site and final completion. Elite landscape professionals from the Midwest entered over 300 projects. Only 58 of the projects were titled top finalists and one project in each of the seven categories was named a winner.

Bret-Mar’s entry involved a new brick paver driveway, front walkway & porch, updated landscape, walkway to backyard, and patio in back yard for entertainment space. The video above showcases the project pre-construction, design phase, and finished product. All paver materials are from Unilock’s prestigious line of products. Thornberry in color Bavarian Blend was selected for the front porch and driveway. This large textured product is from the Enduracolor line and was selected for its strength, natural look, and color preservation. Copthorne in a three color blend was selected for the front walkway, walkway to back yard, and for the accent inlay of the driveway & back patio. Brussels in Sandstone color was used as a soldier course along the walkway and driveway. Beacon Hill Flagstone in Bavarian Blend was selected for the back yard patio. Also from the Enduracolor line, this product was selected for the natural textured surface and color preservation.

The overall goal for this project was to create a welcoming front entrance with a driveway built for durability, improve circulation to back yard for entertaining guests, and allow for several intimate outdoor spaces in the back yard.
