If your ideal backyard includes a patio, Exotic Gardens expert contractors 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.

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 dream 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 and shape of your property, as well as the materials needed for the project 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 honest, affordable, and professional landscaping architects 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 on your property, a building permit may be required but our contractors will take care of all of that for you.

When you hire us for landscaping, hardscaping, 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.

Artificial Lawn Installation in Los Gatos

Lawn upkeep can feel like a full time job, especially when you have to deal with weeds, drought, watering schedules, pet damage, and all of the other little headaches that comes with owning a lawn.

The good news is that there is a great way to avoid all of that: just switch to an artificial lawn! With many options to choose from, generous warranties, and less maintenance, you’ll wish you made the switch sooner. Whether you want a patch of artificial turf in your front yard for curb appeal, dog-friendly artificial lawn for your side yard, or sports turf in your backyard for playing with the kids, we have an option for you.
