A custom patio can easily evoke different visions in different people. For some, a patio is a place to sit in a lounge chair and enjoy a sunny day. Others hear “patio” and dream of a comfortable year-round place to entertain protected from the elements. And still others envision a vine-covered canopy arcing over a swing making an ideal space for reading or contemplation. Whatever you dream, Landscape East & West patio installers can bring that dream to life. Here are the three main types of patios that we install regularly:
Open patios offer expansive outdoor living space, perfect for enjoying the elements while providing a versatile area for social gatherings, relaxation, and entertainment, typically designed without walls or a roof, allowing for a connection to nature.
Patio enclosures transform outdoor spaces into versatile living areas, offering protection from the elements while maintaining a connection to the outdoors, often featuring glass or screen walls to create a comfortable and sheltered extension of the home.
Patio covers provide shade and protection from weather elements, extending the functionality of outdoor spaces by offering shelter while maintaining an open-air atmosphere, available in various designs including pergolas, awnings, or solid roof structures.
No matter what your taste and needs, investing in a patio offers immediate benefits as well as long-term advantages that make patio installation a worthy addition to any home. The days of yards simply being large swathes of green grass are disappearing. Today’s homeowner wants to spend more time outdoors and have a comfortable and functional space in which to enjoy any type of outdoor activity. Installing a patio provides a surface upon which many outdoor activities can be enjoyed.
When you open your doors to a patio, you immediately increase your home’s living space and the enjoyment you get from your home. Who doesn’t want to sit out under a warm starry sky and listen to a fountain or cozy up by an outdoor fireplace to watch the big game with friends? A patio is a truly versatile space that can be customized as an entertainment hub for any age and any activity. Plus a well-designed patio can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a home which is sure to enhance the property value. Open or covered, a patio is a low-maintenance option to give you year-round enjoyment from your yard.
When you’re ready to install a custom patio, our designers can help walk you through the many types of materials to choose from. For some homeowners, the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of poured concrete is an ideal patio solution. Particularly when it can be stamped to add design and dimension. However, paver patios offer variety, and a bit more flexibility, and can be selected to match the look of the home and the owner’s unique desires. Which you choose is a matter of taste, but it also needs to match the unique needs of your yard. If you want drama for a flat surface or need a more functional material to compensate for protruding roots or standing water, we can help you find what works best and still looks beautiful. Here are some of your options when choosing patio materials:
Patio pavers are individual units made of concrete, brick, or stone, available in various shapes, sizes, and colors. They offer a versatile and durable option for patios, allowing for easy installation, maintenance, and the creation of intricate patterns.
Brick patio paver material exudes a classic and rustic charm, offering durability and a timeless appeal. Its versatile design allows for different laying patterns such as herringbone or basketweave, providing a warm and inviting outdoor space.
Flagstone, typically made of natural stone like sandstone or limestone, presents a beautiful, earthy look with its irregular shapes and varying colors. It’s an ideal choice for a more organic and natural patio setting.
Poured concrete is a cost-effective option and provides a clean, simple surface for patios. Texture and pattern can be added through stamping which can mimic the appearance of stone, brick, or other materials. While concrete is a viable patio option, we don’t recommend it because it does not stand up well to the harsh Pacific Northwest climate which can cause cracking.
These materials offer a more casual and natural look, often used for a rustic or minimalist style patio. The permeable materials allow water to pass through and are easy to install and maintain.
Natural slate is a fine-grained metamorphic rock that provides a unique and elegant appearance for paver patios. Its varying colors and textures offer a sophisticated yet natural look, perfect for creating a distinctive outdoor space.
Architectural slabs are large, typically square or rectangular, concrete or stone pieces used to create a contemporary and clean-lined patio design. They offer a modern and minimalist aesthetic while providing a stable and durable surface for outdoor living.
