The patio defines the garden and may be off a bedroom, kitchen, living room or right by the front door.
Many people place their hot tubs and spa area within walking distance of their patio.
The patio is where most people entertain and relax and where the children play.
Some people like to create a patio away from the house so they can take a walk and have a private space amongst the trees.
Installing a patio can be a great way to increase the value of your home.
Our landscape installation crews take every opportunity to install the landscape so it will thrive and endure for decades to come. Our installation crews use the highest quality materials and plants available. We search plant nurseries and growers throughout the northeast to procure the most appropriate plants for each job. Our people are highly trained in the correct and proper methods of installing plant materials, stone walls, water features, patios, and formal gardens.
All patios will be excavated to a depth of 8-12” below final grade. The width of the patio will be over-dug by 6” on each side. A base of crushed stone will be installed to a depth of 5-9” and compacted with a tamper in 3” lifts in order to reduce settling. A thin layer of mason sand will be laid in order to achieve the proper pitch and will also serve as a bedding layer for the patio material. The material of your choice is then laid in the pattern you have selected. A border course is then cut into the patio. Restraint edging is then spiked into place. This will help your patio to stay true to form. Polymeric sand is then swept into the joints. The poly sand acts as a grout which holds the pavers firmly in place and reduces weed growth. A tamper is then run over the surface that will set the material firmly in place. Finally your new patio is hosed down to reveal the final product. This method is used on all concrete paver products. Clay or natural materials will vary.
Benson Enterprises guarantees your patio not to settle or shift for two years baring improper builders grading or other reason unrelated to the craftsmanship of the work. Click here to see our complete Installation Terms of Service.
