Patios and Hardscapes

Hardscaping is an ideal way to expand your home’s living area outdoors. For those unfamiliar with the term, hardscaping is the addition of non-living materials into a landscape, such as wood, stone, metal, and concrete. 

These features serve as compliments to your “softscaping”- trees, shrubs, and flowers that provide natural beauty. Some projects are small in scope, while others are grand, which takes significant planning and installation time. Regardless, each hardscape feature adds beauty, style, and value to your landscape.

If you are looking to expand your home’s living area outdoors, hardscaping is the way to go. From patios and walkways that provide space for outdoor dining or entertaining guests, even water features like ponds and fountains that create a soothing soundscape throughout the day. 

There are many ways in which adding hardscapes can make life more enjoyable on a property. The most important thing about hardscapes? They add beauty, style and value to any landscape. Whether it be a small project or one with significant installation time, we want you to know how easy it is for us at Thornton Deck Builders to help turn your backyard dreams into reality.

Patios

Patios are a great way to provide outdoor living space for your family and guests. Not only will you be able to enjoy the warm weather, but patios also increase the value of your home when it is time to sell.

If you are thinking about installing a new patio, there are many factors to consider. Where should the patio go? How big should it be? What amenities do I need on my patio? Whether your goal is to create an outdoor living space or have a place where you can grill with friends and family, patios serve as an extension of your home. We recommend that you have them installed close to your house’s entryway rather than isolated at one side of the yard.

Most homeowners want some privacy for their patios, so they often install them in backyards. However, some social families now choose to put them up front near entries into their homes. It is because it is more convenient for social gatherings like impromptu get-togethers.

There are many patio material options to consider when building a new one. However, the best way to know which type of stone is the right choice for your home or business is to speak with a professional patio builder.

Some of the most popular choices include concrete, gravel, clay bricks and interlocking pavers. Each has its pros and cons, but if you want something easy to maintain, then gravel or baked clay bricks might be your best bet.

On the other hand, if you are looking for an easy rule of thumb, bluestone and granite are dense stones that resist flaking in freezing weather. They do not tend to sprout a crop of slippery moss too. Softer, more porous limestones and sandstones are good choices for warm, dry climates.

We also cater to requests to install fire features such as fireplaces and water features like waterfalls, lakes, ponds, water walls, and fountains.
