Patio Construction is our Specialty

If your ideal backyard includes a patio, Exotic Gardens can make it a reality. We work with our clients to create the perfect outdoor space whether it’s decks and patios, hardscaping, landscaping, or doing something completely out-of-the-box such as adding a bocce court or even a batting cage.

No dream is too big or too small for us to handle, and we’re happy to sit down with you and figure out exactly what would make you happy.

What if There’s an Existing Patio?

If you already have a patio in your yard, we can discuss your goals and design wishes to decide what to do with it. If it’s in good shape, you can decide if you want it to be a part of your new patio and dreamy backyard.

If it’s not in great condition or you don’t want to keep it as is, we can remove it and prepare the ground for new and improved patio construction that looks more like what you have in mind.

How Much Does Patio Construction in Los Gatos Cost?

The cost of patio construction varies based on what exactly you want. The size, shape, and materials will change the price, for example. If you have a budget in mind, let us know upfront so we can tell you what can be done within that limit. We are an honest and affordable landscaper in Los Gatos.

Patios are more affordable than decks, which is why some homeowners choose them. In Los Gatos, expect to pay 50-100% more for a deck.

We can discuss materials and let you know where you can substitute to save money without sacrificing the look and design you desire. We are here for you every step of the way and want you to love your new patio without feeling too much pressure of a major expense.

Building Permit Requirements in Los Gatos

You won’t need a building permit for patio construction in Los Gatos. If we are building a custom deck, retaining walls, or other structures, a building permit may be required but we take care of all of that for you.

When you hire us for landscaping and patio construction, we take care of the entire process, from the initial design and prep work to hands-on work all the way to cleaning up and completing the job and showing you your new space.

Family Activities in Los Gatos

Sometimes you need to get out of the house and see what the city has to offer. Spending time with family, meeting friends, and enjoying the area is a great beginning that ends with a little gathering under the stars on your new patio.

Here are some of our favorite places to spend time with family and friends in Los Gatos:

  • Vasona Lake County Park: This is a great place to picnic, fish, hike, bike, and just enjoy nature. There are 45 acres just for open activities such as soccer or ultimate frisbee.
  • Castle Rock State Park: We love going here for a quick hike and taking pictures at the beautiful waterfalls. It’s so close to the city, you can’t miss it.
  • New Museum Los Gatos: If you’re looking for something to do inside that’s fun and educational, NUMU is just the thing. You can look through their collection and talk about the history and even buy local artists’ work in the gallery.

We Serve Many Areas – Not Only Los Gatos

Los Gatos is just one of many places we serve in Silicon Valley and beyond. We also offer high-quality landscaping in Gilroy, San Jose, Palo Alto, Atherton and more. If you aren’t sure if you’re in our service area, just give us a call.
