Custom Patio Design Just for You
There is no “right” or “best” patio design – it all depends on your preferences, and the final design is completely up to you. Whether you want a simple brick patio with a couple of potted plants or a large extravagant tiered slate patio with fancy lighting, a water fountain and cushioned furniture, we can help.
When it comes to patio design, the first thing to consider is the material to use. There are a number of different materials to choose from, including stone, brick and concrete, and this is just the beginning!
Stone Patios: Sophisticated & Stylish
If you’re interested in a stone patio, you have a multitude of different materials that will create an elegant outdoor living space!
Flagstone patio design – flagstone patios are appealing due to their low maintenance, durability and natural look, and they make a beautiful outdoor living space, whether your patio is small and circular or is a large, two-level space, complete with a retaining wall and dining area.
One popular type of flagstone is slate – slate patios complement many different styles of homes and can be seen in yards in both modern and older historic neighborhoods. There is a wide selection of colors, all varying tones of earthy shades such as brown, gray and tan. No matter what color your slate patio is, it will seamlessly fit into the style of your home and not only be gorgeous but low-maintenance and last for years and years.
Brick Patios: Bright & Beautiful
If you want a distinguished look for your outdoor living space, consider a brick patio. Though not as commonly seen as stone patios, brick patios have their own advantages – and can act as the unique focal point of your yard.
Brick patio design – a smart brick patio design takes into account your preferences and lifestyle, and we can create a patio design you’ll love. Brick patios are beneficial for a number of reasons, including their non-slip surface, cost-effective characteristics (repair is relatively simple compared to other materials), low maintenance and color integrity (brick pavers maintain their color for an extremely long time). Whether you opt for a darker brown color for your brick patio or a reddish shade, it will remain beautiful for many long years without fading.
Concrete Patios: Creative & Captivating
If you want a truly custom patio, a concrete patio may suit you the best. Concrete patios can give you the most customized patio design since concrete can be shaped into any pattern!
Concrete patio design – the appearance of poured concrete varies a great deal – more so than stone and even brick; concrete can be lightly smoothed, swirled, patterned any way, even molded and colored to look like another material! Concrete’s high versatility is not its only benefit; other advantages include its durability, low maintenance and sturdiness. Concrete patios are not easily damaged by heavy furniture or any kind of weathering.
