Walkways and Sitting Area Installation in Muskego, WI

This courtyard project located in Muskego was originally an underutilized blank canvas that suffered from drainage problems. In addition, the area was full of overgrown plants and trees making it a high maintenance area. To make the space usable, all of the overgrown plants/trees had to be removed, then the drainage problem was corrected, hardscape was added and the area was finished with new plants. In heavy rains, the courtyard would flood and become a muddy mess. Also, the overgrown plants and plants needed constant maintenance. With all of the overgrown plants removed, the area is grading using a laser transit and grade stakes to ensure water drains out of the area properly. New low maintenance and colorful plants with seasonal interest are added throughout the area. Bed sizes and shapes are finalized out and the sitting area is mapped out in preparation for the pavers. Brick paver are installed to create a walkway leading from the building to the fountain. A new fountain was added to the courtyard after the pavers were completed. New sod was added around the courtyard and Mississippi stone mulch were added to the new planting beds to reduce maintenance. Low voltage LED landscape lights were added throughout the space for added evening enjoyment.

Creating a usable and inviting outdoor living space was this homeowner’s goal. Their current outdoor space was too small and surrounded by overgrown plants. In order to achieve the customer’s goal, we had to take everything out and start from scratch. Overgrown Arborvitaes surrounded the entire small deck making the space feel cramped and uninviting. The current deck was in disrepair and was too small to begin with. In the first hours of the project, all of the Arborvitaes, deck and Fieldstone were removed. The stumps were removed shortly. Plywood was used to access the area as not to damage the customer’s lawn. As the deck gets removed, the grade by the house is finally visible and is significantly low which is very common. Every house needs to have a pitch away from the foundation and in this case, we are installed a new patio that will properly pitched. As the patio begins to be installed, the free standing seat walls start to be built up at the same time. All components of the project are constantly checked with levels for accuracy. The new patio features seat walls, steps and matching built in fire pit. With our team and equipment, this project took a total of 3 days to complete. The homeowner can now sit back and enjoy their new patio.

This type of patio project is one we perform every day. The existing concrete patio is bland and too small. We transform this space into a large user friendly patio that can be enjoyed family and friends. When the house was originally built, a basic and small concrete slab was poured. It turns out is was way too small and it did not have any special qualities. Before the new patio can be installed, the old concrete patio is cut into sections and then removed. Grades are being checked throughout the process to calculate the excavation and pitch on the patio. The new brick patio base is being completed and the pavers are being installed. Landscape lighting wire is run within the walls and pillars in preparation for a LED lighting system. A fire pit begins to take shape for evening enjoyment and the pavers are almost complete. A decorative inlay was added along the border of the patio and lights were added to the walls and pillars. The new outdoor living area now has plenty of usable space for everyone to enjoy.
