However. patios can be a great source of enjoyment for your family. For those who want to be outside but not in the hot North Carolina sun, or perhaps you like watching the rain a patio is a great option. Patios can also be enhanced with other upgrades like hot tubs. And our stone patios and other hardscaping options are more durable than wooden enhancements that are vulnerable to things like rot and mildew.


Stonework features are both durable and environmentally friendly. While wooden features require regular maintenance to prevent mildew, stone features are lower maintenance and perfect for people who don’t have a lot of time.
