Patios can provide you with an additional outdoor “room” for family cookouts, entertaining friends or a child or toddler play area. As with walkways, there are many choices in material, style, color, and pattern. A patio in Stow will look completely different from another patio in Streetsboro just by selecting a different color or material. Patios can be combined with walkways or granite steps to make the transition from one elevation to the next. Maximize your existing deck with a small patio accessing the stairs or if elevated, a patio under the porch provides a clean, work, storage or play area.
Creating a retaining wall can turn an unusable side or backyard into a functional recreation and/or leisure area. By incorporating a stairway, a property can flow from one area to another. Natural stone, pressure treated timbers and concrete segmented retaining wall stone each brings its own beauty and feel to a property. As with walks and patios, the initial excavation and crushed gravel base preparation are the keys to a successful wall. Proper drainage behind the wall is achieved through sand or gravel backfill, and with larger walls the installation of drainage pipe to siphon excess water.
