You want more than just a patio, you want an outdoor lifestyle. As well-known, local patio contractors, we take the utmost care with your project from start to finish. Every patio building project begins with a Feasibility Study so you can understand all your design options and set a project budget. Every patio project can include several additional structures, such as a fire pit, fireplace, sitting wall, outdoor kitchen or grill island, bar top seating, swimming pool, outdoor lighting, landscaping, pergola, deck, or pavilion. Each of these elements is described in detail and given a price range. This will help you understand exactly what you want your project scope to include and will guide you during the design process.


After the Feasibility Study the design process begins, where your designer will guide you through the design of every aspect of your patio project. To help you visualize your new patio remodel, your design will be displayed using CAD drawings, mood boards, and 3D renderings.


Once your project is designed, Outdoor Dreams is able to bring it to life. Our dedicated team of landscape designers, builders, and construction managers are able to provide full-service construction services and build every aspect of your project. This includes all structures and necessary utilities such as electrical, plumbing, gas, home technology, and dirt removal.
