Patios, Walkways & Fire Features
Being a small family owned business, we have built our company on reputation and customer service. We take great pride in our work and build our patios to last! A beautiful stone patio can add so much depth and functionality to an outdoor space. Stone patios can provide a family space to enjoy fires, eating areas, a breakfast nook to enjoy your morning coffee or your evening glass of wine.
Stone, Brick, & Paver Walkways
Whether they are made of natural stone, classic brick, or concrete pavers, walkways in your yard should be easy to travel. After all, it's all about the journey more than the destination.

Landscape Walkway Design Considerations
Width - A landscape walkway should be wide enough for two people to walk side-by-side. Four feet is the minimum for a front entry walkway, but 5 feet is better. Secondary walkways can be narrower depending on where they are in the yard.
Shape - Small yards benefit from straight walkways. Curved sidewalks add interest but are more informal. Don’t overdo curves. That will take away from the overall look. So, consider the style of the home. Do you need to emphasize the front entry? Then perhaps a straight walkway is best. Putting a walkway through a large garden? A meandering walkway in your landscape could feel just right.
Materials - When deciding on walkway materials, take your cue from the home. Red brick? Pavers close in color will make it seem as if the walkway has always been there. Natural Stone? Steppers? Gravel? Poured Concrete? Keep in mind that poured concrete or pavers are more solid and safer to walk on than steppers or gravel. Also, in Minnesota, pavers are less likely to crack, but clearing snow and ice can be more challenging.
To build a patio to last, we look at crucial points of the property such as water mitigation, soil composition and design. The majority of our focus during construction is to build a solid foundation to ensure minimal movement and settlement. With Calgary weather being so dramatic, we need to make sure our patios are built tough to last our crazy weather. Let us bring your landscaping dreams come true!
