It all starts with the patio. Like the foundation of a home, all the desired uses must be planned for in advance to ensure it is appropriately sized. Most existing patios or decks are undersized for today’s outdoor living needs.
Space planning occurs first to determine which elements will be incorporated into your patio in Fort Collins. Backyard ideas could include an outdoor kitchen, dining area, fire table with deep seating, a shade structure, or wind coverage.
After the overall size is selected with the aid of Fort Collins top landscape designers, patio surfacing is discussed. Some of the most common patio surfaces are flagstone, brick pavers, and composite materials or decking. Or, if there is a specific look or material you would like incorporated, this is the perfect time to discuss these backyard ideas with our Fort Collins team. With so many materials and options, having experts in patio design is invaluable when it comes to the overall functionality and look of your outdoor space.

See what Our Customers Have To Say
“I can’t say enough nice things about this company. Jeremy and his staff really went above and beyond to keep us informed, change things if we needed to fit in our financial budget, completed our yard in record time. We didn’t chose an over the top landscape, or water feature, just your basic irrigation, sod, rocks, trees and bushes.We tried to get several bids prior to signing with them, but no one would come out, or they were too outrageous on their bids. Highly recommend, A+”
