Caught Between A Deck And A Hardscape? These Sumter, SC, Clients Show You How It’s Done

When Archadeck of  Central SC first consulted with these Sumter, SC, homeowners we arrived at their home to find an aging wooden deck that was falling apart.  This is a common discovery in many of the back yards we visit in the Midlands.  Whether we find a builder-grade deck with minimal thought given to its design or an aging wood deck past its prime, our task is to restore backyard benefit to our clients.

Sumter SC custom hardscapes

Many times, clients with aging or failing wooden decks will opt to rebuild their deck using wood. We also have many that upgrade to low-maintenance synthetic decking. In the case of these Sumter homeowners, they chose to go with a custom hardscape this time instead of a deck. Not only are hardscapes easy to maintain, but the low-to-grade requirements needed on this particular home also made choosing a patio as a replacement a real no-brainer!

Take a look at the Before images of this project prior to removal of the existing deck:

Not only does the new custom patio fulfill their need for a low-to-grade outdoor living space design, it also opened the door (no pun intended) to enhanced accessibility from the back of the home. Before, with their existing deck, the homeowner had to exit their back door and enter the deck to the left using the sidewalk. Now, their outdoor living space is directly accessible right through the back door, eliminating the awkward transition completely.

We used Low Country pavers for this patio and fire pit installation in Sumter, SC.

The custom patio also includes an integrated wood-burning fire pit!

Why choose a paver patio, you may ask…

Paver patios open up a wide range of design possibilities like no other outdoor living structure can. Homeowners can integrate different structural elements, textures and colors in order to craft a space that enhances their outdoor enjoyment.

Paver patios, in particular, are becoming more popular with Columbia-area homeowners looking for low maintenance, durability and stability in their outdoor living space. A low-maintenance backyard structure requires very little attention on the part of the homeowner aside from simple maintenance using common-sense practices. With a low-maintenance surface, all that’s required is keeping leaves blown off the patio, cleaning up mud where the dog tracked it from the yard on a rainy day, etc.

Our custom paver patios work well as part of an outdoor living space combination with a deck or porch, around a pool or to highlight your landscape. Patios are the perfect space to complete a backyard retreat. Professionally-installed paver patios are as reliable, stable and long-lasting as concrete. The minimal maintenance requirements of a paver patio trump the time you spend laboring over the constant cleaning, staining and maintenance of a wooden deck.

These homeowners are elated with their new backyard space. Just read the review they left on Google about their experience:

This company is great and they do wonderful work. Marshall helped us out tremendously and made our house/yard look incredible. I would highly recommend their outdoor living designs to anyone.
