Outside living spaces are valuable additions to any landscape environment. Patios are particularly valuable because they extend our living into the landscape in more exciting ways all the time. Where you put your patio, and what you build it with, speak to the functionality and the aesthetic feel of the space. These choices are clearly important because you will interact with this space often. But, what about HOW you build it?
Truly, HOW you build it, is probably the most important decision you will make for your project. Our team is trained using ICPI standards for paver installation and we have adapted those techniques to work for all our stone choices. The patio foundation, or base, is a critical part of the process. It isn’t the sexy part – it is the nuts and bolts part.
NEVER skimp on your base!
To demystify the process, our most excellent Design/Build team filmed a three part video series on “How to Build a Patio”. We hope this helps you vision your patio, and plan for the perfect base. We hope you’ll watch and send us your comments and questions!
