Enhancing the Classic Charm

Walkways | Driveways | Patios | Retaining/Landscape Walls

Design with character and charm

The experts at Braen Supply were tasked with finding materials that would enhance the character and charm of this house, which was built in 1960. The homeowner was looking to give the older, existing walkway, driveway and patio a face lift that would bring it into the twenty first century.

In addition to redoing those areas, the homeowner added a large fire pit in the backyard, which is surrounded by pea gravel, where friends and family can sit and enjoy the fire on a cool night. Boulders were added to the landscaping bringing depth and texture to the flowerbeds.

The changes that were made to the home made a huge difference in the overall appearance of the house. It now has a modern look while still maintaining that classic charm feeling.


“The team at Braen Supply understood what I wanted and helped me find the perfect match for my home. We’ll be using them for our next project.”

– Fred Williams, Homeowner

more about the materials

Incorporating pea gravel into the landscape not only adds a classic look but it successfully connects this homeowner’s landscape to their garden. Belgium blocks were used to edge off the pea gravel area – all together keeping the landscape neat. This combination of Pennsylvania Fieldstone and full color Bluestone enhances the home’s classic charm. The unique shapes of the fieldstone create a completely original looking wall, leading into the perfect lounge area.
