It Starts with a Patio

Outdoor living spaces are quickly replacing the kitchen as the heart of the home. There is something truly serene about spending time with friends and family while enjoying the fresh air. At Hinkle Hardscapes, we’re in the business of building more than just patios. We want to create an environment in which you and your loved ones will make memories for years to come.

Since 2007, Hinkle Hardscapes has been providing residential outdoor living solutions for Kansas City homeowners. Nearly every project that we build begins with a patio. They set the tone for your design, establish where guests will be gathering in your yard, and provide a base for furniture and hardscaping elements. Patios undergo constant traffic, so it’s crucial that they’re built from durable materials. That’s why we only entrust our projects with the best products in the industry. Unilock and Belgard’s premium paver lines are specifically manufactured to be long-lasting, low-maintenance, and enduringly beautiful; so you can rest assured that your patio will stand the test of time.

Their work team exceeded expectations by not only arriving on time, but working efficiently to get the project completed neatly with little damage to our yard and our neighbor’s. We highly recommend this team for your next project. We look forward to working with them again.

The Superior Patio Material

Pavers are far and away the superior patio material. With more than 22 products in our collection, the possibilities are endless! Whether you’re looking for rustic cobbles, traditional brick, contemporary slabs, or natural stone; there’s an option to suit every style. Each paver line comes in a wide array of colors, shapes, and finishes; so you can easily find a variation to complement your home and existing hardscapes. Customization doesn’t have to end there! Experiment with laying patterns, mix and match different stones, add a contrasting border, or enhance your design with an accent course to create a unique patio that’s guaranteed to capture attention!

Not only are pavers aesthetically exceptional, they also take the cake when it comes to durability and maintenance. Concrete cracks over time and stains easily, the coloring process produces irregular results, reseals are required every other year, and it can be slippery when wet. Comparatively, Unilock and Belgard’s pavers are manufactured with technologies that promote stain resistance, prevent fading, and maximize strength. The result? Authentic textures and vibrant, dimensional colors that are four times stronger than poured concrete.

Increase the Longevity of Your Outdoor Living Space with Pavers

As you’re meeting with contractors, be sure to ask about their paver installation process. Kansas City’s clay soils shift dramatically throughout the year due to our unpredictable freeze/thaw climate. Strong foundations are important for any job; but under our intense environmental conditions, they’re non-negotiable. Your pavers will only be as stable as the base they’re sitting on. Sand and ab3, while suitable in other regions, do NOT perform well in KC. Patios built atop finely-grained materials like these will crumble within a few years.

We install our paver projects over a polyurethane grid base. This mesh-like structure supports 6” of gravel that we compact in 2” increments. By distributing pressure evenly across the patio surface, the system prevents sinking, paver damage, and movement of the underlying aggregate. Aboveground, polymeric sand locks the stones in place and prohibits weed growth. With our installation method, your patio is guaranteed to look stunning well into the future.

Hinkle Hardscapes did a patio project for us including a grill station and gas fire pit which included putting pavers on our patio. We were very pleased with the finished product. The work crew was very creative to make the final product look great.

The Perfect Trio

Fire pits and seating walls are our most popular patio pairing for good reason! These classic elements are budget friendly, functional, and ideal for entertaining. Your family and friends will love roasting s’mores, telling ghost stories, and catching up around the blaze.

Adding a fire feature to your patio allows you to enjoy the space all year round. Looking to heat things up a few more degrees? Columns and under-cap LED’s are the perfect upgrades. End posts visually anchor seating walls and provide a surface for decorative elements like potted plants and lanterns. Outdoor lighting brings patios to life in the evenings and helps guests safely navigate in the dark. 

Jazzing Up the Space with Hardscape Elements

Our hardscaping repertoire doesn’t stop at seating walls and fire pits. We are committed to making your outdoor living dreams come true! We install fireplaces, grill stations, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, covered structures, decks, and fiberglass pools. At the end of a long day’s work, you want to come home to a space that you love and enjoy. By incorporating hardscaping elements, your patio isn’t just a surface for furniture to sit on – it’s a space where you’ll create memories with the people who matter most!

Hinkle Hardscapes was fantastic. They were easy to work with and came up with a brilliant design for our backyard patio and sidewalk. The leadership was great and the workers were very good. We enjoyed the thoroughness of working with everyone. Thanks for a good job!
