Welcome back to our finalized reclaimed cobblestone driveway project on the border of Rowayton and Norwalk, CT near Wilson Cove!
I was recently able to shoot some great finalized photos of this project, depicting the look and feel of what the homeowners had hope to achieve by tying in their "waters edge" home with a distinct beach feel, to a reclaimed cobblestone driveway installation complete with beach pebble edging.
The client wanted to carry through the look of their casual, "beach toned vibe" home, with the installation of this cobblestone driveway. In doing so, the installer created this look by using Big Dig cobblestones that contained a more irregular look--the bumpier the better! These un-machined cobbles were then mixed up to create a non-uniform look and feel. To allow the cobblestones to display more of their natural character, they were then set in mortar using the "raked back" method of installation. This allows the mortar to be set at a lower level, enhancing the cobbles bumpiness and allowing the tops to become more pronounced. All in all, this process showcases the cobbles themselves, giving them a stronger but more casual focal point.
Directly across the street is where the second half of this exciting project continues. Hanging on the edge of this rocky inlet, is the Rockport granite block firepit and table with natural stone seating, along with the haphazard placement of our Ginormous patio stone pavers. Its as if you just stumbled upon a natural seating environment! What a fun place to hang out and take in the views and wildlife!
