The patio is an open, generally flat gathering space. The patio provides the ability to comfortably assemble outdoors. It is for this reason that the patio is of the utmost importance in residential landscapes. So important in fact, that many other elements of a landscape act to serve or enhance the experience for those on the patio. Walkways provide access to it, retaining walls shape the earth around it, fire features, outdoor kitchens and even swimming pools add tertiary functionality to it but without the patio, these elements float in space, unconnected and unusable without the durable, stable surface the patio provides. Patios have a nearly endless palette of materials from which they are constructed. From natural stone such as limestone, bluestone, travertine and Tennessee crab orchard to manmade concrete paver products by Techo Bloc. Recent developments in concrete paver manufacturing have vastly expanded the colors and patterns available to our clients helping us to create patios unique to each family’s personal taste and style.
