The Problem: Uncertain Vision

The Glenn family knew they wanted to upgrade their backyard with an outdoor living area where friends and family could gather, but they had a lot of questions. They weren’t exactly sure about the specific design, materials, or virtually any other features they wanted.

But with the guidance of our design team, their uncertain vision soon began to take shape to include a paver patio and a custom stone fireplace with wood storage boxes.

Project Features:

  • Paver Patio + concrete base: The Belgard Bergerac paver in the Ashbury Haze blend.
  • Custom Stone Fireplace + Wood Boxes: Built using Builder Stone’s Rustic Bucks County veneer with a 36” wide opening
  • LED Outdoor Lighting: LED Path Lights around the patio

The Process: Building a Paver Patio

Pavers are a popular choice due to their durability, beauty, and variety of stylish textures, and they can look stunning for years and years if installed correctly.

That’s why we test the soil and always pour a concrete base with our pavers. A concrete base prevents movement and settling due to unpredictable freezes and high-density clay soils. It also prevents weeds from growing up through the pavers and ensures a long-lasting, beautiful paver patio for years to come.

Atop the patio is the centerpiece: a custom, wood-burning fireplace accompanied by two stone veneer wood boxes on each side, built using Builder Stone’s Rustic Bucks County veneer. Finally, they chose to accent their new space with LED Path Lights around their new patio to demarcate the edge of the patio after dusk.

The Outcome: A Truly Stunning Outdoor Area

With a lake and plenty of green space as the backdrop, the Glenn’s gorgeous stone fireplace and paver patio stand out as the perfect gathering spot. In fact, the fireplace has become their favorite feature of the project.

And they’ve enjoyed the process and the end product so much, that they have their sights set on including a pool next; of course, for that project, they’ll be going with the contractor that they trust, enjoy, and love —  Hinkle Hardscapes.
