Lacoste Garden Center now boasts a brand new 1000 square foot landscape kit and backyard area. With the emergence of our oasis landscape kits, a DIY friendly version of creating backyard living spaces, the team at Lacoste garden center recognized the importance of creating a living space to help their customers better visualize their potential outdoor project. Lacoste and myself met with a landscape architect to help create the design and flow of the outdoor area, lacoste was adamant on creating multiple different living spaces in one outdoor area.These kits were chosen for our end consumer in mind and also with a slim timeline in place. Lacoste wanted their prime store front area used as the display, yet did not want the area under construction for a large amount of time. Kits seemed like the perfect fit as they are all pre-cut and easy to assemble. With the help of hardscapes as the installer, lacoste was able to build the entire kit display in a mere two days.
This area with multiple different ‘rooms’ allows their customer to walk around and find certain components that may work into their outdoor space, yet still see how they could take the entire area and implement it into their yard. Our Rosetta lines were used to create a raised area that creates a separation point for the rooms. The new area is absolutely the prefect space to view all of the new kits for 2012 as well as some new pavers:
Pillar kit – With glass blocks and lights
Circle Extension – now 16′ diameter
New curve Bar kit – Prototype only not released until fall 2012 into 2013
Grand Waterfall – new larger back wall with backaligned fountain wall.
Grand Firepit – New 42″ inside diameter with quarry stone
Verano, heartland & flagstone can be found as well.
