Patios and Walkways
Ask anyone residing in the Atlanta Metro area why they enjoy living here and the majority would say “the weather.” After a short and wet winter everybody moves outdoors. If your backyard is too shady or damp to maintain a lawn, then a patio transforms this once unusable space into a welcoming retreat. Our yards in Georgia are extensions of our homes, no matter the size, our backyards provide additional space for living, cooking, eating and entertaining.
If you are planning the installation of a patio, several different materials are available. Your budget will play a major part in what you choose, but remember to choose a style that fits in with your total landscape plan. Remember to picture how your patio will look from both inside your home and from the street.
Concrete is the material most homeowners first think of when they think of a patio. Luckily, the dated look of large grey slabs is long past. Today’s concrete can be mixed into a number of colors and textures. Pouring concrete is hard work and finishing and stamping concrete is an art. “Stamping” concrete is a way to achieve attractive patterns associated with actual stone material. Creating a decorative pattern is a process which involves pouring and impressing patterns and textures before the patio is completely dry. Our Property Masters “artists” have the training and experience to create a variety of desired looks.
In Atlanta, standard Pavers are the most popular trend in backyard patios. Because pavers are individual units or “bricks,” the natural joints between each paver will “give” with pressure and expansion. A good paver that is professionally installed can last 15 to 20 years. Paving Stones come in a wide variety of surface finishes, colors and shapes that will complement and enhance the architectural style of any home. This choice is less expensive than natural stone, but more expensive than concrete. Not sure on shape and size? No problem. Property Masters will guide you in the design of the perfect outdoor living space.
Flagstone is a natural product and its natural beauty makes an elegant addition to your Southern home. The term “flagstone,” like the term “fieldstone,” is a generic term used to describe any type of stone that is relatively flat. One thing to be aware of is that it is sometimes difficult to achieve a perfectly smooth floor surface. It is also among the most expensive materials to use. A more economical approach is the use of fractured pieces to create a mosaic look for less cost than whole flagstone pieces. We use the finest flagstone available to complement your residence.
