What's Happening In Landscaping: Beneath a deck, a patio begins to take shape!
Updated: Mar 1
Pittsford patio installation in February? Absolutely, Rochester Landscape Designs works throughout the year, including winter months! Thirty degree temperatures aren't bad really when you're busy installing a landscape project! Not every day is workable, but most days that get up above freezing are as good as any spring day for installing a patio. Why would a homeowner undertake a winter landscape project? We offer a 20% discount off projects that sign and begin installation between December and April. Patios, walls, walkways, plant pruning and lighting are typically what we contract during these months.

Project Description: Homeowner's back yard is a great sledding hill but not optimum for an outdoor patio and entertainment area. One exception, under the deck! The homeowners asked us to create a design that successfully completes their wish list. Our design needed to connect the existing overhead deck with the lower house foundation sliding door and create an awesome new patio to entertain on!
