Patios are great for outdoor entertaining, dining or recreational activities. A patio is an outdoor extension of your home. Patios can be created with a wide range of materials ranging from bricks, decomposed granites, cobblestones, pebbles, crushed stone, gravel, paving stones, etc.
The most popular types of patios include:
- Flagstone Patios: A flagstone patio creates a earthy and natural outdoor living space. Flagstone patios have a wide variety of colours and can be customized to fit uniquely shaped areas in either the backyard or any outdoor common area. Flagstone Patios are ideal because moss or earth can permeate in-between the flagstone sections, thus allowing water to absorb naturally. Flagstone patios are drier, less slippery, and free of standing water after a rainy day.
- Paver Patios: Patio pavers are popular because they are the most affordable option, and allow for versatility in patio design and color. Paver patio installation is less complicated and easier to maintain than alternate patio designs, and can be made to fit any size, color, or shape preference to fit your specialized landscaping design needs.
- Stone Patios: Stone patios are a popular option because they are able to withstand the harsh weather, are fade-resistant, and doesn't require staining and frequent maintenance. A stone patio is one of the most naturally durable patio materials.
