Lakefront Patio

September 08, 2016

Project Description:
Client wanted a patio, walkway, and steps installed in their backyard. Being on a lakeshore lot and having a newly built house, they wanted to complete the outdoor space for maximum use for this prime location. They also wanted an irrigation system installed with a lake pump for 100% head to head coverage to ensure a lush, green lawn and great lakeshore landscaping.

PAVER PATIO:
The paver patio enables the homeowner to have an extended entertaining space, or a place to relax outdoors and enjoy the view of the lake.
