How it Looks

Flagstone Entrances

Flagstone is considered to be much more attractive than a plain, concrete surface. This is because the uneven, unsymmetrical stone causes the eye to wander and explore the entire piece. At QPS we have resurfaced many concrete porch's with flagstone to give them a more appealing look. When guests enter your house through a flagstone porch capped with beautiful slate, they are bound to be impressed.

Stone Patios

Lately, at QPS, outdoor living is all the rage. Properly planned outdoor patios are an extension of the household's living space. Especially when the weather's warm, home owners enjoy having cookouts and pool parties, or even just sitting on the patio to watch the sunset. In cooler weather, a outdoor fireplace can provide just the right amount of warmth needed to continue to enjoy the outdoors.

Stairs

Stairs are essential ingredients in many patio ideas, but they can also rise to the occasion as decorative features that tie various elements together. Stairs can be fashioned out of the same paving material as the patio floor, but can also take on added interest with a different texture or pattern. Stairs often look their best when their design combines the primary patio material with a contrasting one, such as large formal natural stone.

Driveways/Walkways

There was a time when the only concrete pavers available were rectangular blocks, While they were sturdy, they were often uninteresting solutions for driveways. Today, precast concrete pavers can be found in dozens of shapes, sizes, and colors and serve as surprisingly realistic substitutes for achieving the look of brick, cobblestone, tile, and even granite. In addition, our QPS technicians can creatively arrange these materials to bring any walkway to life.

Pergolas/Decks/Privacy Screening

The warmth that wood adds is often just the thing to bring backyard landscaping to life. Although pergolas wont provide shelter from wind or rain, and are only marginally better when it comes to shade from the midday sun. Pergolas are a unique architectural blend that places you both inside and outside simultaneously. Add a climbing plant and your pergola will provide color and shade as well. The same design can be used to define a passageway or frame a focal point in the yard.

Planting

With design elements such as colour, form and texture, plants can help your outdoor space transform so they become a piece of living sculpture. Through the seasons, the look and feel of a garden takes on a new perspective as plants grow and go through their natural cycles. At QPS, we subtly manipulate the space to provide season long interest with an added bit of drama to draw you outside.
