Landscape Design - Flagstone Patio Project,
Chadds Ford, PA
In Chadds Ford, PA, a mortared, irregular- shaped flagstone patio with a variety of colorful perennial gardens throughout the landscaping beds were designed and built by Pro Image Landscaping. The size of the flagstone patio was a bit of a challenge to design because of the ample size of backyard space available. The client was requesting that we stay between their budget range for the landscape design and flagstone patio and walkway installations.
Landscape Design Plan
The first rough draft of the landscape design plan was too large and needed to be downsized so it would stay in proportion to the size of the home and compliment the home architecture. We both felt the scale of the patio needed less entertaining space than originally thought. Pro Image suggested bringing the flagstone patio and walkways up to all the entrances and exits for a more consistent look.
Landscape Designers Create Unique Flagstone Patio and Walkway
The space was originally an unused lawn area on a half- acre lot, which allowed for plenty of space to design an entertaining and dining area for family and friends. During the final design phase of the landscape design, we decided to go with irregular-shaped full color flagstone instead of rectangular shapes to create a random pattern throughout the design plan. There is much more labor time to fitting all the pieces of three to four foot sized irregular shaped flagstone. The end result though was worth the extra cost for the client.
Pro Image Landscaping designers suggested leaving the stucco and flagstone steps to lower costs and to keep some of the elements of home architecture throughout the large flagstone patio areas. Irregular flagstone walkways were incorporated to lead to other focal points in this backyard landscape project design.

Client quote: "Pro Image helped us in ways other contractors who were bidding on the job just couldn't or wouldn't". "The other landscape and hardscape contractors wanted us to conform to their designs/budget and we felt Stephen really listened". The end result was a space that had a classic stone masonary look with beautiful perennials flowering throughout the year.
