This outdoor space for dining or recreation may adjoin a residence or be a focal point in the garden or yard. Many times this can be covered with a pergola or hard roof to create a "destination" in the garden or establish an "outside living room" for entertaining or relaxing.
Patios are typically made of concrete or stone slabs laid over a firm base. This base is often formed of a layer of compacted hardcore, a layer of sharp sand, or a layer of cement mortar. The firmness and stability of the base is essential to the integrity of the top layer - an infirm base will typically result in cracking. Inlays are a great design tool for accents. Our designers work closely with you and follow all local building codes to make sure your investment will last for many years to come and that settling or cracking will not be an issue.
