This Woodstock winter begs for a brick paver patio solution this spring

When the snow in Woodstock finally melts, many residents will find themselves with backyard mud pits where they expected to find their lawns. They can spread some grass seed and wait for the grass to grow. Of course, that will take a while and they won’t be able to use the yard until the grass is mature. Then again, maybe this is a good time to do something else with the yard; maybe it’s time for that backyard brick paver patio they’ve always wanted.

Brick pavers can transform a yard from a Woodstock wasteland to a private cove of relaxation and entertainment. Reputable landscape design and installation companies generally offer Paveloc or Unilock brick pavers. As brick pavers go, these are the best in the industry. Some landscape companies, such as Woodstock based Cal & Shan’s, carry brick pavers from both manufacturers.

Both manufacturers provide a wide range of brick paver styles and colors providing considerable versatility when it’s time to design a backyard patio. That’s where the real versatility in brick paver design comes to fruition. An experienced landscape design company can create a customized paradise. No two brick paver patios in Woodstock need be the same.

A qualified brick paver landscape designer will start by listening carefully to ascertain what the homeowner or business owner is looking for. Then, the designer will spend time examining the yard and home, as well as other structures on the property. The goal is to make the homeowner’s wishes come true while matching the brick paver patio to its surroundings.

When you start to consider all the accessories that can be built into a brick paver patio, the options increase exponentially. Brick paver accessories include:

  • Flat and multi-level brick paver surfaces with the paved bricks placed in any number of possible patterns
  • Fireplaces and fire pits
  • Outdoor grills and cooking surfaces
  • Water features, such as fountains, waterfalls, ponds, pools, whirlpools and spas
  • Brick paver retaining walls
  • Brick paver seating
  • Brick paver flower boxes

When you start adding outdoor lighting to the mix, a tranquil setting in the daytime becomes an exotic hideaway by night.

Of course, there are other things you can do with brick pavers. For instance, you can give your home a touch of class with brick paver walkways and driveways, as well as other garden features.

That quality landscape design company will ensure that yard drainage and snow removal are considered when designing the brick paver patio at your Woodstock home. That will ensure that your patio is ready to use throughout the spring, summer and fall and that it will come through the winter in pristine condition, as well.
