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.
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.
