Summer is a few weeks away and hopefully not as rainy as last year with rain for over 20 weekends that started in July!  Many folks make plans for their backyards during the winter/early spring so they can get started extending their time quality living outdoors as soon as the weather warms up. But some may not know where to start especially if you’ve recently purchased a home the last few years. We can help 🙂 For over 30 years, we have worked with clients to create a space that works for their goals, family activities and budgets. Taking the time to Plan your outdoor patio space and backyard is important and will involve more than one meeting. Doing it in phases is also budget friendly and allows you to add on as needed once you start enjoying your cleaner outdoor space. Many folks do a 2 or 3 year plan with hardscapes, privacy plantings, and landscaping. Contact us today to get started 🙂 860-228-3915

 

 

At Picture Perfect Landscape we specialize in Concrete Paver Patio Areas and Retaining Wall Systems for over 30 years. They offer durability and longevity versus poured and stamped concrete especially with the extreme weather temperatures we get in New England. Check out some pros and cons by clicking here. We have found many homeowners like to upgrade their original poured concrete patios and driveways areas with a longer lasting and lower maintenance product that will enhance their property for the next 30-50 years versus poured concrete that will eventually crack. 

 

 

As we talk with each family, not everyone has the same budget or purpose for their outdoor living space. Some folks work all day and only get to enjoy time outdoors after supper or on the weekends.
