If you love outdoor entertaining, then you’ll love the stunning brick patios from J & S Landscaping. Patios are growing in popularity because of a trend toward outdoor living. A well-built and well-designed patio will also increase the value of your home.
Let the professional crew at J & S Landscaping help you plan the brick patio of your dreams.
Design Your Patio
Begin by thinking about the location of your brick patio. Do you want it to flow from the back entrance of your home, with easy access to the kitchen? Or would you prefer a more private retreat, a little further away from the house?
Will your patio be for small family gatherings, or will it need to accomodate a larger crowd? Would you prefer a circular design? You might try placing lawn furniture or folding chairs in different arrangements, to get an idea of how much finished space you’ll need.
Building Your Patio
Once you’ve figured out the size and location of your patio, the experts at J & S Landscaping can walk you through the choices of building materials. In addition to concrete, you can use brick, flagstone, slate or a combination. We’ll help you design a patio you’ll love, that will blend with the style of your house.
In addition to the “look” of your outdoor space, we’ll also want to talk about drainage and the grade of your property. This is a really important aspect of outdoor design. Building a patio without proper attention to water runoff, can cause huge costly problems for your foundation.
Whether your patio is built with stone or created with simple concrete, the right details can make it a standout. Adding amenities like low-voltage lighting, a fire pit and the right landscaping can create the backyard sanctuary of your dreams. Talk to our crew about our 3D Landscaping.
A brick patio extends the living space of your home while adding instant charm and value. Brick patios provide warm, neutral backdrops that look great with most colors. The natural colors of brick also are a great contrast with the greens and citrus colors found in most landscaping.
