Hardscape - Outdoor Patio in Garnet Valley, PA
We do Landscaping & Hardscaping
In the community of Garnet Valley, PA. a new development was recently completed named "The Estates of Garnet Valley". These homes have big backyards to allow for almost any addition; from pools with large pavilions to outdoor patios and kitchens and the list continues.
We got a call from one of the residents living in the neighborhood; he was initially looking for lawn maintenance. We let him know Pro Image Landscaping was a full service landscape company that provided hardscape and landscape design and installation and explained the services we offered. After a few weeks of being satisfied with our lawn maintenance service, he called me one day to set up a consultation for an outdoor patio. There were quite a few homes already hardscaped by this one company and they used the same design for most of the homes. There was no individuality to the homes because they all looked pretty much the same. Our approach was to give him an outdoor patio design that stood out from the rest of the homes.
We service Wilmington, Newark and Hockessin Delaware as well as Garnet Valley, West Chester, Chadds Ford and Kennett Square Pennsylvania and neighboring cities in DE, PA.
An Outdoor Patio Adds Value
The first thing we talked about was budget and what ideas he had for the hardscape design. We also made sure we didn't go over the amount he wanted to invest in his hardscape patio project. Once we had the shape, size and functionality of the space completed, we looked at all the different material options for the pavers and sitting walls.
According to a recent real estate survey on home improvements, outdoor patios and outdoor living areas are bringing a return investment of 125% versus indoor kitchens which rate at about 80%. That is of course if it is done professionally and endures the test of time. Pro Image hardscaping is happy to be one of the top premier hardscaping companies in Delaware County.
Constructing the Paver Patio
We started our construction at the rear door exit where we built a small patio area for morning coffee and a dinette set for two. The area transitioned beautifully down the seven bullnose finished step treads down to the main outdoor patio area with under step lighting for safety. The main paver patio had a large circular inlay installed that breaks up the pattern of the pavers. We also added two entrance pillars as well as 2 pillars integrated into the sitting wall areas.
Low Voltage Lighting as a Final Touch
Light fixtures were installed for additional lighting at night. Low voltage lighting was also used under the sitting wall cap to add an ambient light effect for those late nights of partying with friends and family. A border course of 6"x6" pavers were installed to give the outdoor patio a "finished" look to the edges around the perimeter of this hardscape project.
