Some text about tulips would go here. This text would need to be limited to about three lines. Try to keep it as succinct as possible, while talkinging about the particular plant in general terms.

Patios

Our patios are designed with your unique space requirements tastes and budget in mind. We have done patios since 1968 in a variety of materials to suit your style and taste. The most commonly used materials are:
 
  • flagstone
  • E. P. Henry pavers
  • brick
  • combinations of those
  • natural stone is also available

Decks

We also custom design decks to suit your entertainment needs and to fit your site and budget.  We build your deck to exacting standards of strength and durability. They can be built from several different lumber choices.  The new composite lumbers are more expensive than pressure treated but are engineered to be more worry free - free from checking, splitting, and warping.  We do not recommend cedar decking because of the high maintenance and low durability. What that means is that if you do not apply a sealer/preservative yearly to a cedar deck they only last about ten years. Here are some of your choices in lumber. We use pressure treated for the sub-structure for all decks because of its superior durability and strength.
  • Pressure treated
  • TimberTech
  • Trex 
We repair and refurbish decks without using the harsh chemicals that can dry out and warp the lumber. We sand the accessible surface in three directions and apply water sealer replacing boards as required. There is likely to be one done in your area to see.

Driveways

Studies have shown that although the initial cost is higher a driveway made of E. P. Henry pavers will cost up to 30% less than a blacktop driveway over the long term. Pavers eliminate the need for the absolutely necessary periodic maintenance of sealing and resurfacing that is associated with blacktop and therefore save in the long term.

How strong are paver driveways? They are used in airports and ports around the world because of their great strength. My driveway is done in pavers and simulates a stream bed with ‘paver’ fish swimming in it. I have had trucks loaded with massive boulders drive over it with no damage. We installed Chester Valley Golf Club’s driveway and it has had hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks over it since it was installed. They plow and salt it in the Winter and it still looks as great as when it was first installed.

Plus --- paver driveways are beautiful additions to your overall landscape. The next time your driveway needs resurfacing consider pavers instead.

If you opt for blacktop and need either repair or extension or new driveway work we have an association with Rossi Company which has 50 years experience in driveway repair and installation and general construction.

 

Walkways 

We install walkways with the thought ever in mind that people walk on them and that they are paths to somewhere. A walkway must be durable, comfortable to walk and easy to maintain both in summer and winter. Our walkways use E. P. Henry pavers, flagstone, brick and stone. Sometimes a gravel path through a garden is all the walkway you need. The paver walkway at Chester Valley Golf Club has had tens of thousands of people over it and is extensively salted and cleaned in the winter. After all of that it still looks as if it were just installed. There are flagstone walkways we did over twenty years ago that I know personally are still in super condition.

Retaining Walls

We build retaining walls in many different materials because style matters and so does cost. We use pressure treated 6"x 6" ‘s, boulders of granite & avondale brown, natural stone, and E. P. Henry wall systems.

We have certainly done one near you for you to see.

Ponds

The sound of moving water can be very relaxing. You can have that relaxing feeling in as simple an application as a tub on a deck, or range up to a larger pond deep enough to keep koi or goldfish in year round. They do require some work but modern pond filtration is very simple to operate and generally trouble free.
