Keswick Patio

So you purchased a beautiful new home, with a sloped back yard and steps from a screened porch that lead to nothing. That is where we come in.

Our clients needed a place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, entertain friends and grill. They made the decision to wait until they had lived in the house for a while prior to adding this much needed patio. We had to cut and fill, build a bluestone capped retaining wall that matches the cultured stone foundation, and a lovely concrete slab patio. Yes, I said, “a LOVELY concrete slab patio.” Pavers and slabs have come a long way in terms of color, texture, available sizes and quality. If you ever turned your nose up at the thought of a concrete paver or slab patio or walkway based on what you thought pavers and slabs were, you may consider re-visiting them with fresh eyes. Blending man-made and natural materials can be done well and create a functional space with complementary and contrasting colors and textures, as you can see in the photos below.

We did this project in mid-December, and even though we had to fight the mud and cold weather, we “left no trace”. Well, no trace beyond a great outdoor space.
