Hardscaping involves using stone, block, pavers and similar material to improve a home or business. Hardscapes projects include retaining walls, paver patios, stone patios, garden walls, paver pathways, step stones, paver pathways, sitting walls, and fire features such as fire pits and outdoor fireplaces. A professional hardscape installation will enhance the beauty of your property and will lead to years of enjoyment. Our hardscape design begins with a consultation and can evolve into a full 3D design so you can have a visual of exactly what your backyard or business hardscape will look like after the installation is complete. Valley Landscaping, Stone & Patio is proud to provide professional installation of custom hardscapes in Catonsville, Towson, Pikesville, Ellicott City, Hanover, Severn, and the surrounding area.
Backyard getaways are the justification for a "stay-cation" and with the right backyard retreat you may never want to leave. Backyard getaways are custom designed to give you everything you want at a resort in your own backyard.
Make a statement with a fire feature on your patio. Enhancing the entertainment value on your patio starts with the addition of a fire feature. Enjoy a night around the fire with family and friends. You will be able to enjoy the fire's glow during your relaxing evenings outside.
Replacing your current concrete pathway or walkway with a paver walkway or paver path will give your entrance a valuable custom upgrade. You get to choose the size and layout that will work best for your needs and that match your style and preference.
Creating the ideal space for entertaining, relaxing and fully enjoying your back yard does not happen automatically. Our patio design process for a backyard paver patio or stone patio starts with a consultation where we will discuss your vision and ask questions about how you will use the patio, what kind of patio furniture you have, and the types of activities you plan to enjoy on the patio.
Our patio design process includes discussing the range of budget for the project. Many people ask how much a patio costs or want to know the cost per square foot for paver patio installation. There is no exact answer to that question every time and pricing each job on the same price per square foot is not the most accurate way. Site access, material selected, and topography are just a few things that impact the costs of any paver patio project.
There are many custom options you can add to your paver patio. Adding a sitting wall, backyard fire pit or fire place, and complimenting the patio hardscape by planting trees and shrubs will all enhance the look, feel and overall enjoyment of the backyard patio.
Do you love entertaining outside but hate running in and out of the house? Consider an outdoor kitchen. Having a built in grill, refrigerator, sink, or whatever other appliance you can think of will optimize the space and give you maximum enjoyment.
