Patios serve many purposes for entertaining and private spaces of respite, often tucked in the backyard. Your new patio will be custom designed to conform to the shape of your yard, and to complement all the elements surrounding it.

Choose Chicagoland’s experienced patio builder

Not too many years ago, a typical paver patio was square or rectangular, built of brick shaped pavers typically in the red color family and were often relatively small. Take a look at the patio photo gallery on this website and you will see every shape, color, size and variation. Today’s patios seem to celebrate the freedom that comes with working with smaller building elements such as pavers and stones. Today’s patios often have fabulous custom shapes and are often paired with other structures such as a deck or porch.

Manufacturer options

Here in Chicagoland, there are a number of paver and hardscape material brands we work with including Belgard and Unilock. While designing your project, we will recommend the best materials based on your design preferences. If you’ve found some ideas you love in magazines or online sites such as Houzz, bring them with you to your design consultation and we will help you bring the look to your backyard.

Vertical and built-in elements

Your paver patio can have any number of vertical elements serving your functional and aesthetic needs. These include retaining walls, seating walls, pillars, knee walls, planters, and flower beds just to name a few. You may want a particular structure custom built into your patio such as a custom fire pit, an outdoor fireplace or kitchen, bar, or grill surround.

More colorful than you think

Not too long ago, most paver patios were in the red brick color family. Today’s selections include any number of different color families including beiges, grays, and even darker colors such as black and coffee brown. Often you will see a darker color used as a border or focal element on the paver patio or hardscape.

Not just for the back yard

Chicagoland homeowners are not just adding paver and hardscape elements to their backyards. You will see paver pathways, driveways, side stoops, or steps leading to another level or another part of the yard. A paver or stone hardscape makes a beautiful transition from one part of your yard to another.

Paver and hardscape stones come in any number of textures including cobbled, tumbled, smooth, or rough. When you come to one of our showrooms, we have samples for you to see and touch to determine which colors, sizes, and textures most closely match your vision.

Can a patio stand alone?

While you will often see a patio attached to the home or to a deck or porch, we also build patios that are detached out in the yard such as surrounding a pool or making way to a cozy backyard oasis that has an outdoor fireplace or other structure.

Patio with seating and a fire pit

Don’t be overwhelmed by all the options. We’ve built many patios throughout the Chicagoland market and we’re here to provide guidance, suggestions, and a proposed design that suits your needs and wants.
