"patio work is beautiful, but too cramped with all those plants. Don't get me wrong they are gorgeous, but how do you move around on this patio?"

"I checked out your website and that is quite the change. Your patio and flowers are beautiful. Do you like the stamped concrete? I thought of doing that myself and I like the color you went with. Do you have to seal the concrete every couple of years? "

"Hi Karen n nWe did a ton of work but i think it turned out nice. I love the stamped concrete and yes they told me to seal it every couple years. The house is 30 years old so the existing patio was in much need of repair. We were thinking pavers...but im so glad we went with the stamped concrete. We all but live outside in the summer and i hate to see winter coming. I have more ideas for next year like stone edging and flower beds. Thank you for the comment Karen. n nFrank"
