Patios also make room for plants. You can build a gardener’s oasis on or even around your beautiful patio! For example, relax outside after work surrounded by flowers and maybe even a water feature. Imagine yourself laying in a hammock or on a swing and being one with nature. When was the last time you felt free and unconfined? Feeling unbound in nature is one of the best feelings. Walls or ceilings do not confine you.

What are the Advantages of Getting a Patio?
Patios can add some nice aesthetics to your backyard! They offer a clean and neat look because they easily organize a space for you to add more furniture. You can even choose your color! Having the freedom to choose your design allows the patio to complement the nearby structures in your backyard. For example, the patio can match the trim on your house or the color of your garage to tie all the aesthetics of your house together! We guarantee that we will find the right materials for you and your home. We can even make sure to customize your patio’s design if you have an idea of what you want on it. For instance, we can design to accommodate a fireplace, hot tub, grill, pool, and more.
Patios also require little maintenance because they can be easily cleaned and swept to remove debris! To keep the surface of the patio clean, all you have to do is use a broom or a blower. Also, stains can be removed easily with simple remedies like soap and water. To provide an even longer life for your patio, you can choose to apply a sealant to weatherproof your patio further. With these few and simple maintenance steps, your patio will look healthy for years to come!
They are especially long-lasting because of the way they are built. Patios are created with layers of reinforced strength. This proves especially useful in yards that are shot through with tree roots. Don’t worry about those roots! Your patio will last for years to come. Its size and strength make it less prone to breaking and cracking while also providing defense from weathering and freeze-thaw. This makes them well-suited for all climate types and all seasons, able to withstand the repeated expansion and contraction of warming and cooling.
An often overlooked aspect of patios is that they provide safety. The surfaces we create prevent slipping and provide a pleasing yet grippable feel for you to walk and run on. This same texture preclude the impact of ice and frost. Patios also help you avoid splinters and sharp edges.
Do You Think Your Backyard is Too Small for a Patio?
Think again! We design many patios on small lot sizes. We can meet all of your needs by pinpointing exactly how we can make the most out of your small backyard. We know the right materials, right planting and water features, and right location for every part of your patio!
To create a small patio, we first need to nail down precise measurements. Since it is a small space, details are crucial. We also consider the size of your outdoor furniture because we want to make sure that your vision matches the space. Where we can, we always try to find ways to save space. For instance, instead of two chairs, we might suggest a bench to take their place that can also work as a storage compartment.
Then, we need you to decide why you want the patio in the first place. For example, if you are planning on using your patio mostly in the evening, we need to consider outdoor lighting and heating in your design. If you mostly want to use the patio during the day, we make sure to create a shady spot. We also take into consideration where the sun shines in the space to either avoid it or take advantage of it. We take care of every little detail associated with your patio!
