outdoor living space to your St. Louis area homeYour Customized Patio

One of the first things we will discuss with you when we come to speak to you about adding an outdoor living space to your St. Louis area home is your patio. It will be the foundation for everything we do for you.

Whether you want a rustic look or a cleaner, more modern looking paver we’ve got the pavers you’re looking for. We only work with quality paver companies that offer lifetime guarantees on their products. Companies like Unilock , Pavestone, and Romanstone are our first choices when we choose quality stones for our work.

We build beautiful paver stone patios using color, shape and design that you will love every time you step out your back door. They can be square, oval, rectangular, square and segmented. Each patio we build is designed specifically for your home, yard, and family.

A Fire Pit Just for you

Dreaming of a roaring fire? Maybe marshmallow roasts?  Or do you prefer a glass of wine around a roaring fire? A beautiful stone fire pit can make your dreams a reality. Fire pits are a great addition to any outdoor living space. And it’s easily adapted to your preferred fuel source-be it wood, propane, or natural gas.

Need additional seating? We can wrap a fire pit with a stone seating wall to accommodate your guests. The size of the fire pit and the accompanying seating wall can be customized to fit your needs. When you’re thinking about adding an outdoor living space to your St. Louis area home, this feature or the next should definitely be on your list.

A glowing Outdoor fire place

Want something larger on a larger scale? How about an outdoor fire place? Like fire pits, outdoor fire places are easily customized to fit your needs. They create an impressive sense of style and people love piling in around them.

The perfect Outdoor Kitchen

Neighborhood barbecues are cool again. Memorial Day, 4th  of July, Super Bowl, and even the chillier holidays like Christmas and New Year, are a great time to have a backyard party. And an outdoor kitchen is a great answer to all your prep and clean up woes!

Outdoor kitchens come in all shapes and sizes—outdoor ovens, stove tops, grills, refrigerators, with enough kitchen counter space for prep or even more space to set food out on. All of it is customizable.

Retaining Walls aren’t just walls anymore

When you’re thinking about adding an outdoor living space to your St. Louis area home don’t overlook the usefulness of well-placed retaining walls.

Our retaining wall systems can be both decorative and structural. We can  build them into a hill to expand the usable area of your outdoor living spaces or use them as border for flowerbeds, to create conversation areas around the patio, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, or fire place.

Don’t forget to Light Up Your Outdoor Living Space

We will talk to you about the importance of lighting when we come for a visit. Lighting creates drama in outdoor living spaces, but it also improves safety. A lighted walkway is both beautiful and easier to navigate. We use low voltage LED Landscape Lighting to help find your way once the sun goes down.
