We at Eagleson Landscape Co. create each of our custom patios to fit the needs of the homeowner. Patios aren’t one-size-fits-all; they are individual spaces that reflect the homeowner’s style, entertainment needs, backyard landscape, and other factors like incorporating a hot tub or fire pit. Our client who lives in Fishers is a social butterfly, and also happens to work for LEGO. Part of his job is hosting events and gatherings, so he wanted a large space for entertaining large groups of people at nearly all times of the year. When he came to us, he had already thought of a design on his own, and handed us a general drawing of what he wanted his patio to look like.
We love it when our clients can be specific about what they want. All we had to do with this design was polish it with some defining features like steps and seating walls, block it out in his backyard so he’d know what the final product would be, and work out the final touches with him.
The patio ended up being giant—500 to 600 square feet—giving him plenty of space to entertain. It also included a fire pit (perfect for entertaining outside in colder seasons) and seating walls. We built stone steps up to the house to create a seamless flow between the spaces.
Our client did not want a lot of plant upkeep to deal with, so we kept the surrounding landscape simple with the exception of a 3 to 4 feet tall built-in planter. Our client loved how it added easily manageable, colorful plants that welcomed his guests as they stepped out the backdoor.
Our client loves his much-needed, well-used patio built specifically for his needs. We are excited to be going back again to create a smaller project for his backyard sometime soon. Questions about this project? Send us an email, or give us a call at (317) 997-4803.
