Looking for a stone patio builder or paver patio builder near you?

You’ve come to the right place! Archadeck of Southwest GTA builds custom patios and hardscapes for homes throughout the Oakville and GTA area. If you’ve been dreaming of transforming your backyard, a patio is one of the best places to start. Patios can serve a variety of purposes, from outdoor entertaining to cooking under the stars, and can be built to fit your property. Our designers will create a customized plan that incorporates all the elements you have in mind. Archadeck Outdoor Living offers patio and hardscape design and installation that will bring your ideas to life. If you are considering adding a space, here are some ideas and considerations for your new space.

How do you want to live outside?

With all the beautiful magazines and websites such as Houzz, it’s easy to jump start planning your new patio or hardscape with selecting some beautiful designs or amazing materials you like. We recommend that you ask yourself the very important question of how you want to live outside. What do you plan on doing in your new space? Your answer will help ensure that you get a custom patio space you will use often and that will really fit your outdoor living needs.

How many months of the year will you use your new space?

Here in the GTA, this is an important question. With a short summer season, you will want to expand the amount of time throughout the year that you use your outdoor living space. You may want to consider integrating an outdoor fire feature into your space. Here are some thoughts.

Fire pit

Archadeck can build a custom fire pit into your paver or stone patio. A custom fire pit is built to match and fit within your particular space. We will use stone and other materials to match or compliment your patio. There are a lot of great uses for a fire pit. Think of the kids, a bag of marshmallows and some sticks picked up from around the yard. Then think about several dear friends, a few Adirondack chairs and a crackling fire in your fire pit. Your fire pit is a source for both ambiance and for heat. The heat will be minimal, though, compared to a fireplace. With a fire pit, the heat radiates around but also dissipates quickly in the cooler air. If you’re looking for ambiance, you can’t miss.

Eating outside

As you can imagine, a space designed for an adorable cafe table and 2 beautiful chairs is a lot different than a space with a large 6-person table with many chairs. Think about the different activities you could enjoy in each scenario. With a space designed to accommodate a lovely cafe table and chairs, you will be able to enjoy your morning coffee while reading your paper or even catching up on your morning email. Or, it will be the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet romantic mean while enjoying the sights and sounds of outdoors. On the flip side, your vision of really enjoying eating outdoors might include large family gatherings or regular having guests over to your home to enjoy an evening outdoors. Think about how many people you want to regularly and comfortably feed outdoors. This is an important question because your space will be designed differently if it is to accommodate a large table and chairs.

Relaxing outdoors

How about relaxing outside? Do you think members of your family might use the space to steal away with a good book or even a quiet afternoon nap? Or, do you regularly plan on having a number of guests over or even enjoying picnic style eating with the family? Similar to above, your space will have quite a different design if it is made to accommodate a couple chairs with a small table for resting your book vs. a large seating area with seating for 6, 8 or more.

Custom patio

Your answer is probably both!

Most Archadeck customers are having a custom outdoor space built to suit how they want to live outdoors. And for most, this includes having a generously sized eating area along with a seating are to suit the regular number of people who will enjoy the yard while enjoying friendship, family time or great conversation. A hardscape or patio designed to accommodate both eating and seating doesn’t need to be huge. Share your goals with your design consultant and they will help design a space that fits both your outdoor living goals and your budget.
