Decks | Fences | Pergolas | Carpentry in Pickerington, OH » Sophisticated Shade Covered Patio


$60,000 Budget 

This patio may be small in stature, but it is loaded with character and charm. Nestled in the backyard of this Pickerington home this enclosed, 337 square foot patio now provides the perfect relaxation spot no matter the time of day. The built-in wood burning fire pit and large rounded steps help to soften sharp edges of the patio. Built in lighting along the knee-high seating walls and steps offers security when enjoying the space after sunset. The patio itself was created using Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone and edged out with Holland Premier pavers in a contrasting dark charcoal. The seating walls used Brussel Wall Block and are capped with Unilock ledgestone. This type of coping offers a rugged elegance that will turn heads with its remarkably natural appearance. To finish off the patio, a 12 x 12 wooden pergola was added to provide protection from the elements but still allow the sunlight to shine through.

We added privacy from neighbors along two sides of the patio utilizing arborvitaes and junipers framed out with Japanese Maples on either side. The Japanese Maple trees bring a rich maroon color to the landscaping before dropping their leaves in early winter. The Junipers offer year-round color and have beautiful berries that turn blue when mature. Once matured these berries can be picked in the fall and enjoyed by all.

The front yard also received a makeover. Extending the beds to line the entire driveway make a visually appealing entrance for all those that visit. Rich plant life was added with varying heights, colors and textures.
