The material you choose often depends on the style of patio you prefer. The most common materials used to construct patios include:
- Natural stone such as cobblestone and flagstone
- Lueders Limestone
- Reconstituted stone
- Clay/concrete pavers
In addition to the aesthetics of the material, you should also consider maintenance. Natural stone, such as flagstone, is susceptible to erosion and must be re-sealed regularly. Gravel patios require frequent maintenance and wood needs to be cleaned and stained periodically.

Covered Patio Additions
Patio covers enhance the appearance of your patio, provide shade and offer protection from the elements. Adding a covered patio that fits the current style of your home is a smart decision that will give you a handsome return on investment. The most popular types of patio covers and covered patio options are as follows.
A pergola is a wood structure with a flat, lattice ceiling that is open. It is most often used in garden areas. Pergola additions are a good way to add a focal point to your landscape architecture and give you and your family somewhere to retreat from the beating sun that is more private than an attached covered patio.
An awning protects the patio from the elements and usually consists of a metal base with an aluminum roof, vinyl canopy or water resistant cloth covering. Awnings are not permanent though, and have to be replaced after a while. That is why we recommend an attached covered patio addition that integrates the roofing of your home with the roofing of the patio cover.
A shade trees canopy is formed by the branches and leaves of the top part of the tree. It casts enough shade to cool the area by as much as 20 degrees. Deciduous shade trees, evergreens and flowering fruit trees provide the best shade trees canopies.
Patio accessories add beauty and comfort to your outdoor spaces. Patio furniture and built-in seating/benches offer a pleasant place to relax. You can illuminate walkways and emphasize focal points with patio lighting. Heaters can take the chill out of the air on cool evenings and the flickering flame from a fire pit will cast a comforting glow. Outdoor kitchen accessories, such as a grill, refrigerator and a sink with built-in storage, offer convenience and make entertaining stress-free. The rippling sound of flowing water from a pond or fountain in the midst of a garden masks unpleasant sounds to create a tranquil environment.
