Reminiscent of that quaint vacation bed and breakfast you remember thoroughly enjoying one summer, your brick patio can take you back there without the expensive flight.

It’s the place where you sip your morning coffee and listen to the birds during their sunrise chorus.

Your patio is for that a cool glass of iced tea while you’re unwinding after work or a long, stressful day.

You invite friends and family here on the weekends to enjoy lively conversation, hearty laughs, and make enduring memories. Bet they can’t help but mention your patio’s unique design and how it integrates with the surrounding space.

The scenery makes the scene. And a brick patio is the sturdy, stable, and intricate base for this multi-functional space in your yard. It’s like the canvas of a landscape masterpiece ... the beginning of a beautiful backyard.

Brick Colors: More Than Just Red

The color of brick you choose can reflect different designs and feelings in your yard. Many people think of bricks as coming in that traditional red hue, but they can also come in gray, off-white, beige, mauve, brown, black, and other colors in between.

Matching your patio to your existing home and landscape design is what we do best. Red bricks with a slightly weathered or white-washed look can be a great choice for a more traditional home. But if your home is more modern or contemporary, you might consider a gray or a darker finish.

Brick Patterns: If You Can Dream It …

So many patterns, so little time. The space you have can help determine your pattern options.

Bricks laid in simple rows can shine in larger patios. Basketweave patterns create order and uniformity. The Herringbone pattern is timeless and classic.

Rhythmic patterns can bring a peaceful feeling, while contrasting patterns are unique and artistic. One pattern might encourage lingering, enjoying the scents wafting in from a nearby herb garden, for instance. Another pattern may inspire movement like what happens during a bustling brunch. Circular patterns can draw the eye to the center, maybe to a focal point sculpture.

Combining multiple brick patio colors and patterns – using one for the center of the patio or walkway and then one for the border – can create a look all its own.
