Our professional approach to your project

Natural Path Landscaping: Creating A Natural Work of Art Right Outside Your Door

I got home last night around 10:30 from NYC, pulled in and flipped the high beams onto the walkway. I got out, looked at my new walkway and was blown away. It is incredible. Just beautiful, and truly the old bricks give it a personality to match the house. I want to express my appreciation for your craftsmanship and for going with me on the recycled brick idea. I thought it would work, and the combination of the brick and your skill really pulls the front of the house together.

Thanks again for your courtesy and professionalism. We loved having you participate in bringing our old house to life!

Design & Installation

A beautiful walkway can make a wonderful first impression or can add definition to your outdoor space in subtle, understated ways. And a well-designed patio provides a 3-season extension to your home.

  • Create patios and walls using a wide assortment of natural materials
  • For walks, patios, and steps, customers prize our fossilized Irish limestone and heavy granite

We can also mix natural materials with concrete pavers and retaining walls to accommodate the needs of larger spaces; for example, incorporating driveways or around swimming pools.

 
 

 

Sitting walls and a fire pit often add a critical new dimension to the patio

Patios offer unique benefits:
Given the choice of a patio or low-elevation deck, a patio is often the better choice. Patios put people in more direct contact with the surrounding property, making a better outdoor experience with no need to look through a guardrail. They also offer lower maintenance and far longer life than a deck.

Construction expertise:
Properly designed and constructed, your walk and patio will last virtually forever. That’s why we pay attention to all the important details.

We focus on site work to make sure the base is of proper thickness, well compacted, and that all drainage issues have been addressed.

We install the paving with particular care to make sure the full beauty of the design and paving pattern is achieved.

Finally, we make sure the entire installation is secured in place at the perimeter so that your walk or patio holds together for a lifetime.

 
I saw you build our walkway and know that we could land a plane on it! After seeing all the work that is below the surface I realize just how much we would have lost if we tried to do the job ourselves.

Bluestone patio replaces deck, adding beauty to older home.

At this home, built in 1886, an aging deck addition had begun to present maintenance issues and felt confining to the owner. Now with the new patio, the original foundation is visible and enhanced by a garden area; and the owner can fully enjoy the beauty of the yard.
