Before and After
For this project, we designed and installed an outdoor kitchen with bar seating and a gas firepit feature. Retaining walls and circular patio built with Techo-bloc Mini-Creta wall stone and BLU60 pavers.
See additional photos of this project on our portfolio page.
Designed for functionality and practical traffic flow, this client’s backyard was transformed into multiple outdoor activity spaces.
Dedicated grilling station includes comfortable seating with a leathered granite countertop. Natural fieldstone veneer installed on outdoor kitchen.
Use of retaining walls create a level area for gatherings around the gas firepit, as well as providing raised planting beds for perennials and annuals to bloom.
Firepit has natural fieldstone veneer and a generous bluestone coping to accommodate food plates & beverage glasses.
A fresh modern take on this outdoor patio/kitchen is achieved with Techo Bloc “Hexa 100 pavers in a brown/grey/cream color pallet. The grill station is well equipped for entertaining with outdoor refrigerator and build in trash receptacle; bar is finished in Techo Bloc “Mini-Creta” 3-inch wall stone and a leathered granite top.

I have had the pleasure of working with EDA on three separate projects in three different homes over a 5 year period. In each instance, from design, installation, and follow up service, I have always been very satisfied with the experience. John is very good at communicating a vision for the site and paying attention to all the details. It is the quality of the work that stands out and creates an enjoyable experience for even the most particular client, such as myself!Tom Q - Allamuchy, NJ
