First Impressions

First Impressions1

First impressions are important, and as far as your house goes, your driveway and the entrance to your house are the first things your guests see upon arrival. A beautiful, modern and well-crafted driveway not only raises the exterior look of your house, but it creates the warmest welcome. When selling a house, the value you can get greatly relies on curb appeal. Everything from the curb to the front door is of utmost importance in setting the tone of what is inside.

Whether it be to feel at peace every time you drive home, to impress your guests, or to raise the value of your property, your driveway and walkway are the first things you see. Your neighbours will thank you; as increasing the exterior beauty of your house raises the value of the entire street and neighbourhood. There are tons of options to choose from: a trim made of pavers, a fresh asphalt driveway, a paver clad driveway, a stone walkway…. And so much more. Make a good impression!

Groupe Paramount will help you update your driveway and walkway to fit your needs and budget.

Summer is almost here!


April weather can be fickle in Montreal but as summer approaches, one thing is for sure, Montrealers can’t wait to start eating outdoors again. Year after year, as soon as the weather gets nice, Montrealers flock to outdoor terraces to enjoy drinks, lunches and dinner.  There is nothing better than eating outside after a long winter of being indoors. But you don’t have to travel far to get to these outdoor escapes, you can create your very own beautiful outdoor dining area right at home. This beautiful low maintenance backyard dining area was designed by one of our landscape architects and masterfully executed by one of our project managers. Artificial grass was used to inlay the Techo Bloc paver stones, adding a beautiful contrast of soft and hard materials. The highly stylized and geometric design will not only give your guests an unbelievable backdrop to their time outside, but will become the centerpiece to your very own outdoor retreat.

Cartierville Turnkey


p1This Cartierville, QC client contacted Groupe Paramount to realize their backyard dream! Lee Gregory, one of our project managers oversaw this turnkey project. The clients’ vision, along with Lee’s expertise, allowed a backyard dream to become a backyard reality! Lee took care of acquiring a city permit, choosing the stone and materials, and made sure the clients were well informed throughout the process.



p2This vinyl pool was capped with a Giga Slab from Transpavé, the capping stones were symetrically lined up with the rest of the pavers on the terrace to give it a seamless look. The oversized planter is impressive with the beautiful plantings and cascading curtain waterfall. It was built using Citi Walls from Transpave.
Now that this client’s vision has come full circle, they are free to enjoy some poolside drinks in their modern designed backyard!

Hampstead Haven

photo 1This is a great example of one of our projects from BEFORE to AFTER. The clients had moved to Hampstead because they wanted a large backyard not far from the city. They did extensive renovations to the house and to complete their overall home living experience, they called on Groupe Paramount to create and build them an outdoor oasis.





VIEW 3Chris Rosen was their sales representative who has many years of experience in the pool and landscaping business. It took a large Paramount team that included a landscape architect, 3 D modeller, and several landscaping crews to turn this grass backyard into an outdoor family retreat!
The pavers used around this pool and on the upper terrace were chosen from the Transpavé company.

Contemporary Pool And Garden

p3This contemporary landscape was conceived by our landscape architect, Ellen Rasnikoff, to compliment both the interior and exterior of this beautiful T.M.R. home. IPE wood was used to add a warm texture on the upper patio and the sundeck surrounding the pool. This wood does not rot and withstands our harsh winter conditions. The pool itself was positioned to one side of the property to help conserve a large existing tree and allow this family of five enjoy a children’s play area! The clients wanted an herb and vegetable garden, we were able to incorporate one into the patio that adds a sense of family to the landscape. This is a small but significant addition to any family backyard!



p2The paver of choice in this backyard was Techo-Bloc’s Blu Grande, the walls are Blue Ciel natural stone, and the pool is caped with St-Marc Limetstone.





p1Whether the outdoor space is used for an intimate dinner party for 4 or a garden party for 40, this backyard will undoubtedly impress the guests!

Turnkey Project In Blainville

c2This stunning reconstruction project in Blainville was originally completed only 6 years ago by another contractor. The clients were not satisfied with the work and they were having major problems with their pool. Enter Groupe Paramount! Working in collaboration with an independent Landscape Architect, Richard Belisle, our in house 3D Modeller, Mathieu Bédard, was able to propose the final design for this property.  The Paramount team transformed the botched backyard into a relaxing summer oasis. This turnkey backyard is perfect to spend quality time with family and friends.



The pavers and stones used were from Techo Bloc, the pool was capped using the Bali Travertina, the walls with Raffinato and the tiered patio with Travertina 30×30 in Ivory colour.




This family can now cozy up by the fire pit on a chilly night or invite the whole family for a BBQ in this little slice of nice!
