One of the best ways to improve the value of your home and the quality of life is to create a beautiful landscape to spend time in. Allentuck Landscaping Co. can help you create a patio and landscape design in Frederick, Maryland

At Allentuck Landscaping Co, we view patios as an extension of your home, your outdoor family room, so to speak. A place to spend quality time with family and friends, or just decompress from a long work week. You have probably gone to great lengths to make you indoor family room special. Why not do the same with your patio? Allentuck Landscaping Co. has the talent and experience to make your patio just right for you.

Let’s start with the basics.

What Patio Material Is Right For Your Patio?

Flagstone and brick pavers are both great materials for your patio.

Pennsylvania Flagstone is a natural gray stone available in different sized squares and rectangles, for a more formal look, and irregular shapes, for a less formal look. It can be installed on a concrete base with mortar joints or on a stonedust base. Both methods are strong and offer a great long term investment.

Brick pavers are available in a multitude of colors and shapes. It is also possible to combine different styles to create stunning spaces. Typically, brick pavers are set on a sand base.

What Patio Style Is Right For You?

Just as there are different styles of architecture for homes, there are different styles for patios as well. It your home is more formal, square or rectangular shaped patios may be more in order. However, if your home is less formal, more organic or irregular shapes may be a better fit. No matter what, choose a style that you will be most comfortable in. After all, the patio is for you and the more comfortable you are in it, the more you will enjoy using it.

Lets Make Your Patio Awesome

Now that we have the material and style for your patio selected, let us add some options to make your patio awesome.

Add a Seat Wall – This sounds simple enough, and it is. A seat wall around part of your patio not only provides extra seating capacity, but also creates a boundary to your patio, making it feel cozier and more private. Another benefit to a seat wall is that when other families come over, the children naturally migrate to sit on the seat wall leaving the parents to enjoy the meal even more.

Light It Up – Lighting can greatly enhance any patio room and extend its usefulness into the night. With today’s technology, LED lights can also save energy and reduce the need to change light bulbs. An automatic timer makes the whole system care free.

Grills can be fueled by a gas line or a propane tank and can be as simple or complex as ou want it to be. It is even possible to add a bar with seating for a spectacular way to entertain.

Let There Be Fire! – What is better than sitting around a campfire in the comfort of your backyard. A fire pit can really make a good evening a great evening. Choose from wood burning or gas, just save us a s’more.

Cool In The Shade – Adding a pergola is not only a great way to create shade, it can segment your patio into unique spaces. Place an outdoor couch and love seats under it to create a great gathering space, or a table to make a fantastic dining area.
