The Problem: Finding the Right Contractor

Corey Casey had been looking to revamp his outdoor space for several years. He wanted a patio that he and his family could enjoy that would also add resale value — so he put in a lot of time and research to find the right contractor for the job.

After searching high and low, he finally chose Hinkle Hardscapes, citing our competitive bid, positive reviews, portfolio of past projects, and willingness to work with his ideas.

Project Features:

  • Stamped Concrete Patio: Monster Slate stamp in Mesa with chocolate accent border.
  • Outdoor Kitchen and Grill Station: Belgard Weston Wall in a Brittany Beige blend.
  • Firepit and Seating Wall: Belgard Weston Wall in a Brittany Beige blend.
  • LED Outdoor Lighting: Undercap lighting on the seat walls and the wall around the steps.

The Process: Adapting and Elevating the Design

Corey’s initial idea included an outdoor kitchen and lounge area but he looked to our expertise for recommendations and we came back with a slightly adapted direction.

To maximize the space and make grill access and prepping easy for the cook, we placed the outdoor kitchen area in the corner nearest the house.

The use of attractive, yet cost-effective stamped concrete allowed us to include value-added features, such as a gas fire pit and seating wall.

The Casey Family chose our Monster Slate stamp in a mesa color with a chocolate accent border.  We tied in the lower patio with a set of stamped concrete stairs and a path to their existing deck. The grill station was built out of Belgard Weston Wall, in a Brittany Beige blend, which complements the mesa color perfectly.

The Outcome: A Patio Done Right

The Casey Family loves their complete outdoor kitchen and patio entertainment space. Corey views it as an “addition to the house,” and you can be sure that every summer, spring, and fall (and even in winter) you can often find he and his family outside, enjoying their all-seasons patio.
