The Creation Process Starts with You

“It is nice finding that place where you can just go and relax”. - Moises Arias

Let’s say that you have the space to build something like this in your backyard but you don’t know where to start. You will need the guidance and expertise of a professional to accomplish it. The good news for you is that we are here to help you to make this creation process as fun, exciting and hassle free as possible. 

Cervenka Masonry's distinctive seal is quality, so you know that our service will be outstanding from start to finish. With that in mind we put together some helpful tips to help you to be ready to build that dreamy outdoor space at home. 

It is okay to dream

If you have decided that you want a patio and that you are ready to move forward with the creation process, then the next step is to start looking at designs. Get inspired from magazines, TV shows and photo galleries. To make this process easier for our clients we have included in our website,, a complete project gallery where you can get inspired with just a click. And not only that. We have also provided our customers with 4 amazing patio designs that you can customize to your needs. All you need to do is select one and let us take care of the rest. 

If after this you are still unsure what will fit better in your space and budget, ask yourself  the following questions: 

  • What will be the main purpose of the patio?

  • How big do I want my patio to be?

  • What do I want to have in my patio? 

These questions can help to eliminate the many features that you can add to an outdoor space, making the process more simple and budget oriented. 

What will be the main purpose of the patio? Do you want it to entertain family and friends? Do you need the space for family time? Or perhaps it is only you, and all you need is a space where to enjoy the four seasons in the comfort of your backyard. Picture any of these situations and visualize that space. This should bring you to next question: 

How big do I want my patio to be? If you are picturing friends, children running around, pets and a decent crowd you will need a large space to accommodate all of them.

If you are thinking of just the family, the space you will need will be the standard for an outdoor patio. The point of this exercise is to have a clearer idea of the patio size you will need in order to avoid overspending on a space that it won’t be utilized or to go with a smaller space just to have to look into an extension within the year. 

What do I want in my patio? This is the fun part of the creation process. With the purpose of the patio and size in mind, adding the features that you want and need will be a piece of cake. If what you want is to entertain, an outdoor kitchen is a big hit among big crowds. It will give you the perfect excuse to cook outdoor meals and invite everyone to enjoy them!. You will also need the space to set some outdoor seating and a dinner table.

For family gatherings fire pits are a must. You get to create precious memories while making s’mores, hot dogs or just simply “camping” around the fire. 

If your crowd is smaller, you still can add some chic features to your space. A cool small seating wall with LED lights could serve as the focus of your design with extra seating space, if needed. 

We have a plan. Does it work?

Here comes the tricky part. Dreaming is nice but you also need your patio to be safe and practical. If you have an idea of what you want and where you want it, you can count on our team members to stay focused and real at the time to work with your design.  

During our site meetings our team members will measure and mark the areas for you, as well as to check for drainage issues that the design or the location of the features may encounter.

At Cervenka Masonry we will not only lay your pavers and bring your ideas to life, we will also take care of the engineering part of your project from making sure the area is completely leveled to confirm that you won’t have hideous water puddles in your new backyard.
