Each year we work with clients to create a space that works for their goals and families. Taking the time to Plan your outdoor patio space and backyard is important and may involve more than one meetings.

Here’s a great article from HGTV about Patio Planning 101 that I found helped if you are thinking of renovating your backyard this year 🙂
Picture Perfect Landscape is an Authorized Contractor for Unilock Pavers and Walls and they have some beautiful material to create your outdoor oasis. You can check out their design center for ideas to get started. Once you have a basic idea as to what style you like and elements you would like to incorporate, give us a call.
We also are certified TechoBloc installers and New England Silica has a showroom located in South Windsor that we highly recommend. We are able to meet with clients at their home, check out the project site, discuss their plans and goals, and suggest the appropriate materials and design/layout to fit their budget.
Sometimes this may mean doing the project in a couple of phases, but clients can achieve their objectives without having to sacrifice quality. Having a realistic budget is key and smart planning goes a long way to customer satisfaction.
Here are just a few sample designs that we have done:
Ron attended some seminars and hands on training demos up in Massachusetts on the latest products for patio area spaces.
