With this backyard raised patio and fire pit project, created for Go Pavers, the challenge was in appearing to "remove" the older pergola and showing what the planting would look like on the steep backyard slope.  For the front yard, showing a new driveway (with or without the red car), a retaining wall and entry steps there were several steps and wall-related changes to get it "just right."

An upstate New York snowy backyard doesn't stop imaging that displays changes turning into springtime.  From an icy backyard "Before Photo" with a combination of 3D design elements -- walls, fire pit and related hardscapes -- overlayed on a 2D image, the customer can see the potential for an outdoor gathering & entertainment area.  2D & 3D imaging morphs a blank canvas into "visual" living spaces.

During long, hot summers, small yard homeowners often have large dreams of Olympic-sized pools.  However, the reality of their postage stamp backyards drops them quickly back to earth. Now, technology allows the installation of "endless pools" perfect for aquatic exercises in tiny spaces.

2D-3D combination image using an actual background photo over-layered by a 3D model of a back patio, including two seating walls, pillars, a BBQ, steps, and paver patio.  In addition, there is an "actual" final installation photo of the curved pillar patio project.

With 2D imaging, a South Carolina dirt road becomes a paved entrance.  Question is... Which driveway and paver design looks best?  Basic Driveway imaging project created for Accu-Brick…

To sell an installation, it's not always necessary to show a lot of complexity.  A covered outdoor room seriously needed a redo with dated fireplace and BBQ bar.  With this fireplace project we’ve included the actual installation photo to compare it to!  See what you think.

Sometimes, creating larger composite photos to work from, shows a “wider perspective, when you want to see the scope of a patio project.  Should you use flagstones?  Permeable pavers?  Regular Belgard pavers?  What will the urn fountains ultimately look like?  Or a fire pit area?  Choices, eh?

A decorative concrete circular driveway creates more parking options for a large bland front yard.  In addition, the car collecting homeowner appreciated the compass rose center design that he could drive over, instead of around a fixed object like a fountain or planter.

A new paver patio, fire pit, and planter definitely alters and vacant Florida backyard space.  What makes the design “come alive” is the landscape. It’s fun to see various options… from tropical… to roses.

Creating a private outdoor room, connected to a Master Bedroom suite, may be a dream… but with the VisionScape 3D software you can play with ideas and inspire your own designs.  Includes links to a video animation of the spaces.

When empty, grassy open spaces seem to call out for the creation of a gathering destination, fire pits are the perfect answer.  Add in an outdoor BBQ zone – either covered or uncovered – and you’ve ensured a place to welcome friends, family, and guests for years to come.

Sometimes it’s just fun to dare to dream.  Sit in a lovely garden, sketchpad at the ready, and doodle designs that eventually morph into 3D spaces and circular party places.  Check out the video animation on Vimeo or YouTube as well!

Taken during an upstate New York spring, with snow on the ground, the decorative concrete contractor (who also installs pavers), wanted to show a complex backyard “vision” of a covered outdoor room structure, a back door pergola on a raised patio, and more.  Since they wanted two different views for the customer, the imaging decision made was to integrate a 3D model with a 2D photo and imaging design.

A homeowner, with a house For Sale, needed a solution.  There is no garage and no off-street parking at the small Bungalow home.  Rather than go to the expense of installing a parking pad, he used imaging choices to “show” the parking possibilities for potential buyers.  Sometimes, imaging projects can be simple, with big payoffs.

Transforming a Beverly Hills cracked concrete driveway, non-descript walkway, and plain vanilla entry steps and into a tropical oasis with lush curb appeal is the focus of this 2D imaging project.  Steps are a bit of a challenge when the need to be shown close up, and from a distance.


Imaging Inspirations - Friday, August 2, 2013

Shows a 2D landscape and decorative concrete project using composite photos so you can show a much larger panorama view of a property (especially if you don’t have a Panorama camera or a wide angle lens).


Imaging Inspirations - Friday, July 26, 2013

Displays a completely 3D project created for Go Pavers, to illustrate the idea of a 3D Demo Garden or Virtual Showroom including multiple Belgard pavers and walls…
