Patios are the hub of outdoor entertaining. Through our design process we will get to know you and how you entertain. We will study the spaces and work through every detail and option to assure your patio flows with your home and other spaces and includes every feature to fit your needs. Our landscape design center is the perfect place for inspiration and to discover the many available options in materials while discussing what features and installation method fit your needs. From locked gravel, to pavers and natural stone, our team will have a solution to fit any budget. A patio design is not just the patio. All the details like walls, steps, planting beds and landscape lighting are part of your new outdoor living space.
Below are some options for additional features:
Covers and Shade Structures
A very popular covered patio renovation choice is a pergola or pavilion. Pergolas provide semi-shaded coverings that can be accented with plants or canopies.
Pavilions provide maximum protection from the elements, as they are freestanding and sturdy structures. They are also inviting, and create a warm, room-like atmosphere to an outdoor space. Pavilions can be equipped with overhead fans, electrical outlets, and even outdoor televisions!
Cloth shade sails not only add shade but can add a modern style and color to your living space.
Outdoor Kitchens and Islands
For those who enjoy using their patios for entertainment, choosing to get an outdoor kitchen installed is often a practical and encouraged renovation option. The ability to cook outdoors while simultaneously entertaining guests is an attractive choice for the seasoned entertainer. By adding a wood burning pizza oven and island, assembling and cooking pizzas with your guests becomes the entertainment. Features like warming drawers, sinks and refrigerators and even beer taps make your outdoor kitchen as high tech as the kitchen you have indoors.
Seating walls are not just for seating. Walls help define spaces and are pleasing to look at. Incorporating under cap wall or step lighting will help illuminate your space at night and add safety to steps and elevation changes.
