Creating Outdoor Living Spaces | Spotlight on Surfaces

Building your dream outdoor space is exciting and should be enjoyable, as it will provide a great space for both relaxing and entertaining. There are several options to consider when thinking about your outdoor space’s surface, including pavers, stone, and concrete. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to consider these, along with your budget before deciding on a surface.


Pavers are a popular choice for patios because they are durable, versatile, and come in a variety of colors and textures. They are also easy to install and can be customized to fit any size or shape. Pavers are made from natural materials like brick, concrete, or stone, and are typically interlocking, which makes them easy to replace if they become damaged. However, pavers can be more expensive than other options and require maintenance over time.



Stone is a timeless and elegant choice for a patio surface. It is durable, slip-resistant, and can be customized to fit any design style. Stone is also low-maintenance and can last for decades with proper care. Stone can be more expensive than other options and may require more labor to install. It may be difficult to replace individual stones if they become damaged.


Concrete is a popular choice for patios because it is affordable, durable, and low-maintenance. It can be stamped, stained, or textured to mimic the look of other materials such as stone or brick. It’s an easy to install surface and can be poured in any size or shape. The only downside is that concrete can be prone to cracking over time.



Choosing the patio surface that’s right for you is a top priority for our design team. With careful consideration and expert installation, your patio surface will provide a beautiful and functional outdoor living space for you and your family to enjoy.
