In 2016, Belgard worked with Toll Brothers to complete a community pool deck for the company’s Hidden Canyon development, a single-family housing community in Irvine, California. The job was initially specified with a competing product, but Belgard was able to provide a high-quality alternative, Lafitt® Rustic Slab, that was not only cost effective, but also immediately available in a color that perfectly matched the existing exterior palette. In fact, Toll Brothers liked the product and color so much, the design team changed the pool coping colors to match.
Lafitt® Rustic Slab features the look and texture of natural cut slate combined with the lasting strength and staying power that are hallmarks of Belgard pavers. The spacious, 12,000-square-foot pool deck was designed to complement the luxurious Hidden Canyon resort-style recreation center, which features immaculate landscaping, palm trees, terracotta-roofed poolside cabanas, a fireplace and a multipurpose room for hosting parties and events.
The Lafitt® Rustic Slab scale—up to 15" x 22"— and its texture are unique to the Belgard line. The product offers three shapes allowing Toll Brothers’ design team a range of options to create a unique look for the recreation center pool deck.
