Patios & Terraces

You may have heard of patios referred to as “hardscape”.  When designers talk about a “hardscape” they are usually referring to walkways, patios, terraces and steps. Hardscapes direct people through a landscape, allow for areas to sit and relax and create transitions from one level to the next. Hardscapes are the workhorses of the landscape and set the stage for interesting plantings and features that surround them.  We do a lot of work with hardscapes.  Patios are one of the more common types we install.

Deciding on exactly what material to use is based on the architectural style and color of a clients home along with the “look” they are trying to achieve. Ehrmentraut Landscape Concepts has years of experience with the installation of brick, flagstone, and concrete paver systems.  Let us help you find the right match and the right look for your style of home.

“Our old patio was basically unusable space. Jon took an eyesore and created something beautiful and practical. He listened to our ideas and created a patio that was perfect for our family. He focuses on all the small details and wasn’t satisfied until our patio was absolutely perfect.”
