Most homeowners think that patios are installed for leisure, and on a flat backyard. But after asking our Hardscape Heroes why their clients approached them, we found that many projects were about solving detrimental problems in the client’s yards.
Meet March’s Hardscape Hero winner, Brian Gillespie of Ultimate Hardscapes! If his name rings a bell, it’s because Brian was our October 2014 winner.
So you’ve hired the “right” contractor, approved your project budget, picked a design and decided on your paver products. What now? Well my friend, the time has finally come. Let’s put in that patio.
It can be difficult to sell your design if your client just can’t envision the plan. That’s why Eagle Bay has teamed up with VizTerra, a professional 3D landscape design software.
What’s the process like once you begin working with your contractor? Here are a few things to consider.
Congratulations to our February Hardscape Hero winner, Chris Veronie of Tidewater Pavestone!
