What's Right For My House?
Proper placement and sizing of your patio will mean the difference between having a relaxing area you will use regularly and for most of the year or one hardly used because it’s cramped and uncomfortable. The size of the patio should be based on the number of people who will be using it on a regular basis. There should be room for table/chairs, a grill area, and extra seating. Other factors to consider:
Conquer Steep Slopes with a Multi-Level Patio
If the grade is steep, multi-level or tiered patios can add hundreds of functional square feet to a landscape. A multi-patio design with different areas for eating, a fire pit, and sometimes grilling, or an outdoor kitchen is a common solution for hilly landscapes.
Small Yards, Great Patios
Small yards deserve love too. Defining key areas can eke a lot of function out a small amount of space. A distinctive hardscape creates a focal point for the design, and an open space for entertaining or dining.
Beautiful Natural Stone patios
Natural Stone, such as flagstone, has a distinctive appearance but is more difficult to install. In order for the patio to be level, the depth of the base must be adjusted to accommodate the varying thickness of the stone. Natural stone is extremely durable and can last for centuries.
If properly installed, your paver or stone patio will last at least 30 years! So it makes sense to think through the design, choose the right materials, and invest in proper installation.
